Our new Faith in Action Group
SEPTEMBER 2021- Jessica from Leeds Diocese came in to speak to Year 5 about the Faith In Action Award
From next half term we will begin the Faith in Action Award with some of our Year 5 children. The children have all expressed an interest in this following a visit from Jessica Wilkinson from the diocese.
The award rewards young people's active service in helping to build the Kingdom of God on Earth. Many young people are doing so much to follow Jesus' example in serving others in their schools and parishes. The Faith in Action Award encourages young people to take that service into their wider community and accept greater responsibility for their faith in action. It encourages young people to shine the light of faith upon their experience of service through guided and personal reflection.
The award coincides with the children’s preparation for Confirmation and will be a stepping stone for their continuing involvement in the Christian life. After the first level, the children can choose to carry on with the award through high school.
The children will begin with the Pin level award and will be encouraged to undertake activities in the following areas: Prayer, Pilgrimage and Procession, Parish Practice, Social Action.
