The Faith In Action award is an amazing opportunity to get involved with your faith and to get involved with your school and parish. This nationally recognised award is designed to help encourage you to live out your faith and really make a difference in the world and at each stage you’ll be challenged to put your faith in to action for those around you.
Through a series of reflection points and by completing hours of service both in school and parish, you’ll journey into a deeper understanding of what The Church teaches and how it can affect your life today!
If you are looking to take part in the Faith In Action award you’ll need to register with your school / Parish who can provide you with the resources and links you’ll need to get started.
This years FIA starts now with registration and Reflection Point 1 ideally to take place before October half term. Reflection point 2 takes place between October Half Term and Christmas with Reflection point 3 taking place between Christmas and February Half Term. The final reflection point and completion of final projects needs to take place before Easter. We have found it easier to run 4 / 90 minute reflection points but these can be run as 6 – 1 hour sessions if that makes it easier.
The final submission deadline this year is the 1st of May 2020 any work received after this time will not be eligible for the award this year.
Don’t forget you need to be logging both in school and out of school hours alongside your reflection points and you’ll have access to the log sheets
To register your school for this years FIA award please complete the form below. Registration is open until the end of October. You’ll then be contacted with details about how to enrol on the CYMFED site to access the online resources for running your group.
Your young people will also need to register individually this year and you will be sent the link to that form once you have registered as a school / parish
