Charity and Raising Awareness
Community, Charity and Raising Awareness
We teach the children that to be active in their faith is to take action. There are several fundraising events during the year as well as activities to support local communities and charities. As a Catholic community we place great focus on being of service to others, in the way Jesus taught us. A beautiful example is how, every Christmas, each class prepares cards for parishioners and each class sings carols in local care homes.
Solidarity arises when we remember that we belong to each other. We reflect on this in a special way at Mass. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states, “The Eucharist commits us to the poor. To receive in truth the Body and Blood of Christ given up for us, we must recognise Christ in the poorest.” Solidarity spurs us to stand side by side with our sisters and brothers, especially those living in poverty.
“In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers [or sisters] of mine, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40
