Cura - Live Well: 'Meaningful Work - Lessons from Catholic Social Teaching on Solidarity in the Workplace'

Tuesday, 18 July, 2017

The next Cura-Live Well session, “Meaningful Work" Lessons from Catholic Social Teaching for the Workplace,” presented by Chris Collins, S.J., assistant to the president for mission and identity, will take place from 11 a.m. to noon, July 18, in Room 251, Busch Student Center.

Catholic Social Teaching is the body of doctrine from the Catholic Church that provides guidance on how to live a socially just life. There are seven themes that define the doctrine and participants will work through how themes including solidarity and subsidiarity relate to living and working together in daily life. Solidarity is defined as the idea that all women and men are part of the human family and as members of that family are called to actively care for one another. Subsidiarity relates to the idea that decisions should be made at the lowest appropriate level to the work at hand. Registration is available here.

‘Live Well’ is part of SLU’s employee wellness program and is run through Human Resources. Its purpose is to address employees’ personal, spiritual and financial well-being. Programs are offered monthly for one hour, 11 a.m. to noon, and sessions are intended to be educational and interactive with audience participation. Attendees are eligible to receive 35 Vitality Points.

The Cura program is a response to the SLU community's stated desire to build and sustain a positive workplace culture. All SLU employees have a responsibility to foster a culture of understanding, respect and appreciation for the people with whom we work and interact, and to inspire a collaborative and collegial working, learning and social environment.
