The Faith in Action Award, the CYMFed National Catholic Award Scheme, challenges young people in school to put their faith into action.
The Award Scheme facilitates an exploration of scripture and Church teaching, with an emphasis on translating this into action. The scheme rewards young people for their active service in school and encourages them to take their service into the wider community and accept greater responsibility for their minstry.
At St James’, we have launched the Bronze Award with a group of Year 7 students so we can celebrate the faith journey of our young people and encourage them to have a tangible living faith in the ‘real world.’ Students are required to demonstrate commitment to service within the school and the wider community, to work for the Good News and the common good, as well as a desire to reflect on their relationship with God and the universal call to holiness. Students keep a journal and to complete the Award, they present a piece of work, in a medium of their choice, to represent their personal faith in action journey.
