Live Simply Award
‘Each one of you has received a special grace,
so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God,
put yourselves at the service of others’
1 Peter 4:7-11
First reading for Memorial of St Angela
We are pleased to share with you that we are working towards becoming a LiveSimply school and achieving the LiveSimply Award.
The LiveSimply Award, coordinated by CAFOD, the Catholic agency for overseas development, is presented to schools who demonstrate they are living simply, living sustainably, and living in solidarity with the world’s poorest communities.
During our LiveSimply journey, we will be taking faith inspired actions that support our school & local communities and our global sisters and brothers too.
During Advent we made LiveSimply Pledges and we look forward to telling you more about our actions and inviting you to take part with us in action and prayer.
Welcome letter from the Rt Rev Stephen Wright, Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle and chair of CAFOD’s Board of Trustees
you created the world for us all to share,
a world of beauty and plenty.
Create in us a desire to live simply,
so we can see your generosity.
You gave us responsibility for the earth,
a world of riches and delight.
Help us to live sustainably,
so that those who follow us may enjoy the fruits of your creation.
Help us to act in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters
so that we help to create a fairer world.
