The Good Shepherd Appeal
This appeal involves the children and students of the diocesan schools working together to organise a wide range of fundraising events. The appeal culminates in Leeds Cathedral, when representatives from the schools give what they’ve raised to the bishop. It’s always a joyful occasion, with the children telling their stories as only children can. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all the young people in our diocese who are so generous with their time, energy and enthusiasm – and of course for the money they raise, which helps to make a difference to the lives of so many.
At St Joseph's the recycling themed non-uniform day and junk modelling competition raised a total of £111 for The Good Shepherd Appeal.
Go Green For CAFOD
As part of our efforts to get involved in climate change and support our chosen charity: CAFOD, next week we are asking our children to ‘Go Green’. On Friday 26th November we would like our children to dress up in non-uniform. The non-uniform must contain an item of clothing that is green.
We would also like you to send in a minimum of £1 per family as a donation to CAFOD.
There are also lots of things you could do at home as a family to help fight the climate crisis! Follow the link below to see how you can get involved.
Together we can shine a light on some of the causes of the climate emergency while doing our bit to guard God's creation and protect our common home.
