Caritas Internationalis is a confederation of over 160 members who are working at the grassroots in almost every country in the world. CARITAS is the helping hand of the Catholic Church - reaching out to the poor, vulnerable and excluded, regardless of race or religion, to build a world based on justice and fraternal love. This website has more information about CARITAS - https://www.caritas.org/
We start each half term with a CARITAS week and teach CARITAS lessons. To see what is taught over the year click here. Our school Beatitudes also support all our CARITAS teaching in a practical way. We have annual collections for Cornerstones and St Joseph's Penny, have a look at this article for some of the charity work for CAFOD that the children decided to do after and assembly visit from a CAFOD volunteer - https://www.indcatholicnews.com/news/38737 You can also see some of our CARITAS "Called to Action Stars" awards on our GIFT Team page.
We are involved in supporting "Laudato-Si Centre" - for more information have a look at this website - https://www.dioceseofsalford.org.uk/the-laudato-si-centre/
For our return to school in September 2020 we followed these slides that Bishop John kindly shared with us.
