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 ministry. We offer the award to students in conjunction with the Diocese of Shrewsbury, 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.
In 2020-2021, the Diocese of Shrewsbury is one the few Dioceses to be running the award due to restrictions of the Coronavirus pandemic. Due to these restrictions, students are only able to work towards the Pin Award. We hope to pick up again in September 2021 and work with students to achieve their Bronze Award.
