St John's Catholic Primary School

To Live in Love

Live Simply

The CAFOD Live Simply award is an opportunity for our school community to respond to Pope Francis' invitation in Laudato Si to 'work with generosity and tenderness I protecting this world which God has entrusted to us'.

Pope Francis is telling us that an important part of our faith is to care for the creation and to develop respect for everyone in our world. Gaining the Live Simply award allows us as a community to take this action, to help our community live, not just more simply but also more fully. The award celebrates what we have already done and inspires us to do more.

As a school and wider community, we are called to look at our lifestyles and choose to live SIMPLY, SUSTAINABLY and in SOLIDARITY with those who live in poverty.

What can you do to 'live simply'? Our children provide some useful suggestions on our weekly newsletter...
