Catholic Social Teaching has always been at the very core of St Alban’s School. It is a central and essential element of our faith.
It is a teaching founded on the life and words of Jesus Christ, who came "to bring glad tidings to the poor . . . liberty to captives . . . recovery of sight to the blind" (Lk 4:18-19), and who identified himself with "the least of these," the hungry and the stranger (cf. Mt 25:45).
During the academic year of 2018-19, over £1800 has been raised! Many, many thanks to all of St Alban's School Community and Parish for their support. Here are just some of the charities we supported during 2018-19.
