Live Simply - supporting Madison Court care home.

We visited Madison Court Care Home with our choir and sang songs of peace in November and carols in December. We also made some beautiful Christmas for all of the residents. 

Live Sustainably

Taking action towards protecting God's creation. 

In our whole school  prayer and liturgy after listening to Pope Francis’ Laudato Si, our children were inspired to pledge to live more sustainably so that we can all take better care of our world. #LiveSimply  #LiveSustainably 

Live in solidarity - work to support our local homeless charity Teardrops

Live in Solidarity

As part of our Live Simply #Cafod pledge we have shown how we have lived in solidarity with people living in poverty in our local community by supporting Teardrops which is a homeless charity in St Helens by filling our Harvest Rainbow donation boxes. Our amazing efforts have made a such a difference to our local community.

We have taken direct action as part of our Live Simply Pledge to support our brothers and sisters in our local community who are less fortunate than ourselves.  #LiveSimply #Liveinsolidarity.
