WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE CARE OF CREATION

All around the world, the encyclical of Pope Francis, 'Laudato Si' is being put into practise whether in a parish, local community, institution or organization.
This was made even more meaningful when His Holiness proclaimed September 1 as a Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. St Peter Chanel Catholic College of Secondary Teacher Education in the Archdiocese of Rabaul heed the Pope's call when together with the staff and student Teachers put up activities to mark the day. Adorned with green t-shirts with 'Care of Creation' written on and green meri- blouses, they were ready to be protectors of Mother Earth. Although they celebrated on 4 September the message was loud and clear, they want to carry on this day for years to come as was stated by the Chief Executive Officer, Mr. John Maidang. Present to witness the day were Archbishop Emeritus Karl Hesse MSC, Sr. Anita MSC, Sr. Susan Markus MSC, Parents and Citizens who reside in the campus.
The Guest Speaker of the Day was Archbishop Francesco Panfilo sdb, speaking on the overview of the encyclical he challenged all present to live the virtue of stewardship towards creation but the highlight of his message was from his Pastoral letter issued on the Solemnity of the Assumption. The practical approaches included
-the church giving back land to people esp. from large plantations but that people are willing to share this land with each other instead of fighting over it because God is the NAMBAWAN PAPA GRAUN.
-Low income housing to provide homes to people 
-the restructuring of the agreement of the Palm Oil Project of Sigite Mukus in West Pomio, for environmental friendly project and a consensus with parties concerned.
He asked all present to work together with the bishop to make these practical approaches become a reality for the Common Good.
The day ended with activities like pantomimes, songs, dances and speeches all related to the Care of Creation.


Our Vision 

"That we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ" (1Jn 3:23a)

The Vision has its foundation in the bible. It expresses,"Sensitivity"of the Past, "Awareness of the Present", and "Expectations of the Future". Not what we like but what God likes; not what we want to do, but what God wants us to do. The work God wants is this; that you believe in the One whom God has sent. (Jn 6:29). To believe in Jesus Christ then is the way to arrive definitely at salvation".


Our Mission

"Go and make disciples of all nations. (Mt 28:19a)

The Mission of "God's family in the world" follows Jesus' mission. The life of God's family must reflect Jesus' life. Since we can do nothing without Him, we have to meet Jesus in His Word (Jesus as Prophet); we meet Him in the Sacraments (Jesus as Priest); we meet Him in our brothers and sisters (Jesus as Shepherd).
