“The great task that has to be faced today for the renewal of society is that of recapturing the ultimate meaning of life and its fundamental values.” (Pope John Paul II)

“We owe [to young people] the true values which give life a foundation.” (Pope Benedict XVI)

Values for Life is an exciting package which is designed to support the teaching of values and virtues to young people.  It provides clear teaching on the “Gospel Values” which (emerging form the Beatitiudes)  should be promoted throughout their currculum in every Catholic school.  It also offers schools a rationale for planning how to help young people to understand and to commit to Gospel values such as Wisdom, Justice, Compassion and Integrity.
