We are very excited to have been chosen as a Pilot School for the new Leeds Diocese Faith In Action Awards.
The Faith in Action Scheme aims to:
- Celebrate the part already played by young people in Catholic life.
- Allow young people to reflect on their journey in faith, and in particular asking ‘what kind of person am I becoming?’
- To enable young people to develop further opportunities for service and witness in their local communities.
- To strengthen the links between the local, diocesan and Universal Church.
Our Pilot programme at SBSJ will commencing on All Saint’s Day and aims to finish before June 2018. This will be followed by a diocesan awards ceremony before the end of the school year.
Our pilot group are to be year 9 students who received the Sacrament of Confirmation during the last school year..
The Faith in Action Award has four stands for our students to work on
2. Pilgrimage and Procession
3. Parish Practice
4. Social Action
Once the pilot has been completed, the Faith in Action Awards will be rolled out to students in other year groups.
