God made everyone and is present in everyone. We are made in the image of God. This makes us all
special and loved. It means that we should always treat others with respect and fairness.
The Common Good
We need to think of everyone, and work towards what’s best for everyone. We can do this by using our gifts
and talents and offering our time. It means that we can be active and do good things for others with love.
We are all connected as one global family. We show support for everyone, especially those who are living
