THE GOOD CITIZENSHIP VALUES CLUSTER
→Faith in Almighty in action
Participants may choose to integrate the value of faith in God in their subject areas/lessons, in their family life through the arrangement of stronger faith practices in the home (e.g. praying before having meals, praying of the rosary, encouraging children to develop a habit of prayer and reflection especially when faced with moral discernment), and, their daily lives by always attributing one’s effort to God and making Him a part of the choices and decisions that one makes.
Considering the significance of my prayer in my life and in my country’s history, I am more fully aware of the things I can accomplish when I live a life of faith. I have in me the desire to do right things, make moral decisions, and work to the best of my God-given gifts. I shall strive to hold my moral ground when I am confronted with things that undermine my values and those which may injure the well being of others.
My faith is a gift that strengths me in times of crisis and helps me arrive at conscientious decisions. I am aware of its manifold benefits and I shall strive to nurture this gift through prayer and reflection. I also understand that my faith in God can bring me to appreciate myself, my family, friends and colleagues, my job and my people better. Thus, I will do my best to be a discerning individual with God as my source of wisdom in everything that I do. With my resolve to be a better person, I can go further by putting my faith into action. I shall live a life that is based on the right values and serve as an inspiration to others who may be struggling to strengthen their own faith in God.
→Respect for life in action
Participants may choose to integrate the value of respect for life in their subject areas/lessons, in their family life through a deeper personal reflection and consciousness of practices in the home (e.g. instilling of disciple, recognition of the uniqueness and worth of each member, role modeling of parents so that their children may grow with dignity and right values; and in stressing the importance of health and personal development and in their daily lives and communities by always recognizing the dignity of others and appreciating the value of the life of every person. Participants may choose to make a personal pledge to consciously uphold life in every circumstance and shun violence as a means of achieving an end.

You shall strive to arrange your life in a certain way that will allow you to be a more productive citizen. You shall inspire others by your example to live peaceful and more meaningful lives by living the value of order everyday.
