Building Resilience in Schools Pastoral Outreach Series: caring for yourself and others

What happens when a student needs your encouragement in coping with a difficult personal situation? Do you want to help but sometimes feel worried in case you might “put your foot in it”? The new Pastoral Outreach series is a practical, user-friendly, non-academic pastoral resource which helps chaplains and other pastoral care providers to give even more effective and appropriate support. Written by experts in their field, each book offers background insight and sensitive coping strategies. With new titles appearing quarterly, the Pastoral Outreach series quickly grows into a valuable library for “first responders” with a role in pastoral care.

Loneliness

Christine Olsen

Depression

Adrian Treloar

St Teresa of Calcutta remarked, “Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.” Christine Olsen is a community builder for her local authority and specialises in bringing people together and helping them to find friendship. With her abundant practical experience, she offers insight and strategies which clergy and pastoral workers will find a godsend in their work.

Depression is often trivialised and sufferers told to “snap out of it” or “pull yourself together”. Yet one woman described her experience of depression, saying, “I can’t get away from ‘myself ’ and ‘myself ’ is hurting so much.” Consultant psychiatrist Dr Adrian Treloar addresses the concerns surrounding depression. He suggests practical strategies, helping clergy and other pastoral carers to sensitively support people who are experiencing the pain of depression.

New for 2018-19, customise your diary with a choice of six colour covers. For more information and sample pages see www.rpbooks.co.uk/diary This new diary for primary schools is designed to help children develop strong Christian values. For each week of the school year there is a double-page spread. On one side there is a weekly diary and on the other a Christian theme is explained in age-appropriate language with fun, engaging activities. Themes such as respect, humility, reverence and thankfulness are explained by using either a Bible story or a modern tale. Faith-building facts, puzzles, quizzes and colouring-in motivate the children to think about how the value can impact on their lives and helps them to make good choices. The major festivals in other religions are highlighted. If this diary is used daily as a channel of communication between parents, carers and the school it will help those families that are not Christian come to understand the special mission of a church school – to grow and educate each child emotionally, physically, academically and spiritually.

The Survival Guide for Young Catholics John Chater

SPECIAL OFFER

Do you wonder why, as a Catholic, you do some of the things that you do? Have you ever found yourself unable to answer basic questions about what you believe and why you believe it? The Survival Guide for Young Catholics will tell you a bunch of stuff that you might already know and a lot more that you probably don’t. You won’t get long, boring answers. Instead you will get quick-fire, straight up answers that any parent or pope would be proud to hear. So prepare for an overview of the Catholic faith that is sure to leave you a little smarter, a lot more confident and the envy of your fellow Catholics.

Marriage: when two become one While we have seen that the Church places great importance on marriage, fewer people than ever before are choosing to “get wed” – with many couples opting to cohabit instead. So, is marriage still relevant? It should be obvious by now that the Catholic concept of marriage involves more than simply the wedding within the church, although, like everyone else, Catholics love a good wedding. However, what makes a marriage Christian is not a good knees-up following the ceremony, but a personal relationship of life-giving love in which two people make the love of Christ present to each other, and one in which the partners become a sign of love of Christ to those around them. This is a high ideal, a sacred ideal. And it’s because of this that the Church supports and actively promotes marriage. In addition, marriage provides 62

Why do Catholics have to get married in church? When Catholics marry they believe that God ratifies their union. This is expressed during the wedding ceremony, in the words: “What God has joined together, let no man put asunder.” Catholics see marriage as something that God is involved in: that is why the wedding takes place in church.

many benefits, one of which is stability. This is important because a stable family provides the best environment in which to bring up children, giving them the firm grounding and confidence they need to learn and grow. It is also the best environment for the husband and wife to grow together, and for their love to deepen as the years pass.

Releasing the Angel

Saluting All Who Strive to Teach Christopher Gleeson

This is a book for teachers and all involved in teaching.
