Clifton School’s Deputy Director to walk 50km for Mission Together!

This year, Clifton Diocese is celebrating ‘A Year of Prayer’ and, encouraged by the Deputy Director for Schools and Colleges, Ann Fowler, schools have been taking part by linking prayer with action.

Pope Francis’ charity for overseas mission, Missio and its children’s branch, Mission Together, asks children to put their faith into action by praying for, and sharing with, children living in poverty overseas. So, for Ann, it was appropriate to set schools the challenge to raise £10,000 between them for Mission Together.

Ann and her husband, Tony, have given themselves the task of walking the Cotswold Way Challenge – a walk of 50 kilometres in less than 14 hours!

Ann told us, ‘If we are asking schools to put their time and effort into supporting the respective charities it is important for us to show we are willing to do the same. We would also like the work of Mission Together to be more widely known.’

The Walk takes place on 29 June and Ann hopes that children from schools in the diocese will turn out to cheer her on. You can sponsor Ann by visiting the link below:

Good luck to you both. We are sure the children of Clifton diocese are very proud of you!

‘W’ is for Wednesday Word

The Wednesday Word is an accessible and attractive double-sided A4 leaflet which carries the Sunday Gospel into school family homes every week. An increasingly popular way to share the Gospel with parents and families, its mission is to help all school families draw closer to God, to the Church and to each other.

The Wednesday Word gives a simple message about faith and everyday life and created positive time together that helped our children relate the Gospels to their own life and situations.

Subscribing schools provide pupils with a Wednesday Word leaflet which they are then asked to take home and read with the rest of the family. Fun and engaging activities are also included to help children and parents unpack the Gospel further, together.

The Wednesday Word particularly seeks to reach parents who do not take their children to church or read the Bible together. It is also designed to act as a regular invitation to the Eucharist throughout the time that the family is connected to the life of the school. If your school hasn’t yet subscribed to Wednesday Word, visit http://www.wednesdayword.org/index.html for more information and for details on how to subscribe.
