Spiritual Reflection for Teachers


The conviction that we belong to one human family should influence the way we live, reflect, decide and respond, both individually and collectively. Just as we belong to a particular family, we also belong to the family of the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church is a world-wide family of people who believe in the risen Jesus. In all its diversity, the Church is united in Jesus and we are all members of the Body of Christ.

Whilst being part of the Catholic Church, what do you think gives the Church in Australia its own distinctive character?
