Students who were confirmed last year were invited to be part of a pilot group to take part in the Faith In Action Awards. By taking part in the Faith In Action Awards, students are enabled and empowered to explore, develop and live their faith whilst being celebrated for the good they do and challenged to live more and more for the Lord.
Awarded by Bishop Marcus, the award is recognised nationally by CYMFed, the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation.
Although new and currently lesser known, the awards will show colleges, employers and universities that a young person with this award on their CV, is a young person happy to go above and beyond what is expected of them.
It shows a commitment not only to your faith, but also to the community - as well as an understanding of the importance of experience, analysis and reflection when taking action.
The Celebration Evening was attended by students from 8 schools and churches. At the Celebration Evening for Faith in Action Chude Isiuwe led the Prayer of Commitment for our Faith in Action group and Clarisse Bajet, Jasreel Ducusin and Hannah Maslen together gave a Testament describing how the Faith in Action journey.
