May 2024 – Life and Dignity of the Human Person


The Catholic Social Teaching of Life and Dignity of the Human Person is foundational in Catholic beliefs. It asserts that every human life is sacred and inherently dignified because we are all created in the image of God. This principle underpins all other Catholic social teachings.

In practical terms, the Hope from Home campaign aligns beautifully with this teaching in several ways:

  1. Empowerment and Stability: The campaign prioritizes providing resources and support systems to help individuals and families overcome challenges and build a better future. This mirrors the Catholic principle of empowering individuals to reach their full potential.
  2. Restoring Hope and Dignity: “Hope” is a powerful symbol in the Catholic faith, representing belief in a brighter future. By offering essential services and fostering hope, the campaign helps restore the dignity and self-worth of those facing difficulties.
  3. Focus on Vulnerable Populations: The campaign’s emphasis on supporting families and individuals in need resonates with the Church’s teaching of a “preferential option for the poor.” Through hope and assistance, CCPGH uplifts vulnerable communities.

You formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works!

My very self you know.
My bones are not hidden from you,
When I was being made in secret, fashioned in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw me unformed;
in your book all are written down;
my days were shaped, before one came to be.

Psalm 139:13-16

Almighty God, Father of all creation,

We come before You today in humility, seeking Your guidance and strength. You have formed us in Your image, Lord, and bestowed upon each person the gift of life, sacred and worthy of dignity.

Open our hearts to the truth of Your teachings, that we may see the reflection of Your love in every human being. Grant us the wisdom to recognize the inherent dignity of all, regardless of age, background, or circumstance.

Fill us with compassion for those who are struggling, especially the families and individuals facing hardship during these challenging times.

As we launch the Hope from Home campaign, we ask for Your blessings.

  • Guide us in our outreach efforts so that we may reach those most in need of support and hope.
  • Bless the resources we offer so that they may truly uplift the lives of those we serve.
  • Inspire generosity in the hearts of our donors so that we can continue to provide essential services and programs.
  • Grant wisdom and strength to our volunteers as they dedicate their time and talents to the campaign.

May the success of the Hope from Home campaign allow us to continue our mission of upholding the dignity of every person. May the hope we offer resonate with those in need, reflecting Your love and compassion in the world.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
