Our local community, CAFOD and our global community.
St. Anne's has a long history of supporting Cafod - the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development. Within our Come and See lessons, the Universal Church topic in the Summer Term, is dedicated to exploring and understanding the work of Cafod and how this relates to Church teaching and Scripture.
We are very fortunate that the Cafod Liverpool team serving our Archdiocese have such wonderful volunteers who are regular visitors to school. They host assemblies and workshops to enable to children to gain a greater understanding of their work and how we can support this.
Please explore the photograph section for some recent photos of the visit Cafod made to explain the 'Share the journey' campaign they launched to highlight the plight of refugees.
Throughout the year, Maximillian Kolbe house team, with the support of Mrs Volynchook, organise fundraising events to raise vital funds for Cafod's work in this country and in the wider global community. For example, Harvest Brighten Up campaign, World Gift Christmas Card Swap and the Lent Family Fast day.
This year, as a school community, we will continue to work towards achieving the Cafod Live Simply award. This involves completing actions to show that we are living simply, sustainably and in solidarity with the world's poor.
The Faith in Action team will be heavily involved in helping us to work towards achieving this goal and more details will be sent home on a termly basis. In the meantime, please see the action plan and if you can help with any of the actions in any way then please do contact Mrs Volynchook at school.
It is now the 5th Anniversary of Pope Francis' encylical letter "Laudato Si", looking at the impact we can have on caring for our common home. For further information and activities please visit the Cafod website (www.cafod.org.uk). Links to the activity packs can also be found at the bottom of this page in the files to download section.
