Dear Parents/ Guardians,

We are very pleased to welcome your child onto the Faith in Action Award Scheme for 2022.  We look forward to guiding your child as they work towards their chosen award level, encouraging them to develop and build upon their unique gifts and talents as they become disciples of the modern world.  In addition to participating in the range of activities associated with each award in their parish, school or community, your child will be required to attend 4 Reflective sessions.   These sessions will provide your child with regular opportunities to share with the team all the good things they have been doing and they will be encouraged to explore these activities in the light of the Gospel message.
