How beautiful it would be if each of you, every evening, could say: “Today at school, at home, at work, guided by God, I showed a sign of love towards one of my friends, my parents, an older person!”
(Pope Francis, addressing young people, April 2013)
The Pope Francis FAITH AWARD is an award of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, designed to help children to show “signs of love” in their daily lives and to be active members of their local Church. It invites young people at the Primary 6 and 7 stages to use the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and to see how they can bear fruit in their homes, schools and parishes. It is directly connected to what young people are learning about the Sacrament of Confirmation. The award is open to all Catholic Primary schools and parishes, normally involving children across the years of Primary 6 & Primary 7.
Enrolment for Primary 6 pupils is now closed for session 2016.
If you would like help and support to prepare for enrolling in session 2017/18 please contact the SCES office.
