LIVING THE LESSON:
One Paycheck Away
5 credit hours
(Due February 1, 2022)
There are many people that are forced into homelessness or poverty and do not have their basic human needs met because of their circumstances-lack of experience, lack of an education and lack of a job with a living wage. For this assignment, students are to research employment for someone without a college degree, is under the age of 21, and has minimal experience. Then, they will need to find housing and pay all necessary bills on that monthly income.

LIVING THE LESSON assignment: Feeding the Hungry
December 30, 2021
Our focus during the months of November and December is food insecurity. So many people in our community suffer from not having enough food to feed their family. Catholic Social Teaching based on Scripture instructs us to care for those who suffer and to assist when someone needs help. So for November and December, consider what you can do, as a family, to help those who are food insecure.
