October 2019 Action Guide

 

October 2019: I am Global Hunger & Advocacy 

October 4th is the day in the liturgical calendar when we remember Saint Francis who prayed "Lord, make me an instrument of your peace...." This month we invite you to be God's way of making this world a better place with an emphasis on action on global hunger. As we raise our voices, we both express and experience the good news of God's love for us and for all. 

 

Opening Prayer

 

Community Building

  • Welcome any new CRS Student Ambassadors and ask what they are most excited about or what brought them here.  
  • Icebreaker discussion - What do you think of when you hear the term "Advocacy"?
  • Share the CRS Advocacy Video

 

Catholic Social Teaching: Rights and Responsibilities

  • Watch: Catholic Teaching on Rights and Responsibilities 
  • Reflect:  
    • Where do you see or hear about rights being violated in your community or around the world?
    • Whose responsibility is it to ensure those rights are protected or fulfilled?
    • How might God be inviting you to advocate to protect the rights you feel most passionate about and to ensure that corresponding duties are fulfilled?
