Faith in Focus

Faith in Focus at St Maria Goretti’s Preston


Year 6 children at St Maria Goretti’s decided that they wanted their chance to be able to raise money for a variety of charities and spread their faith to the wider community.  Faith in Focus meet every Thursday afterschool for an hour and use the time to discuss issues that concern them (locally, nationally and globally).  Through a variety of creative activities; they are given the chance to be heard and pray for the things that matter to them.  Filip (Y6 ICT Technician) told us, ‘I enjoy being able to show people that everyone is important and that we all have a role to play in helping to be the hands and feet of Jesus- literally everyone can get involved and play their part!’

So far they have written, directed and performed an Easter Passion Play (named Open the Door) to raise funds for CAFOD.  In addition to this they are designing videos to promote Pope Francis’ call for us to be stewards of the Earth and they are hoping to organise a local pilgrimage before their time at St Maria Goretti’s comes to an end.  It was a truly special team event where they used their gifts and talents to; design the set, choreograph the music and sing their hearts out.
