5 schools, Holy Family of Heywood, St Augustine’s Billington (near Clitheroe), St Paul’s from Wythenshawe, Loreto RC High in Chorlton and St. Mary’s Brownedge of Bamber Bridge came together on Thursday 4th July to ‘Speak Up for CAFOD‘ at the Cathedral. The 60 pupils involved all participate in Justice & Peace/CAFOD groups in their schools and they spent the morning sharing their work, which included such things as fundraising, campaigning and awareness raising both in their schools and local communities. They all did fabulous presentations showing that they are young leaders in the making. There was a lot of energy as they took ideas from each other. In the afternoon, they listened to Tamiru Legesse, who works for CAFOD in Ethiopia. Later, they each prepared a square cloth which will be put together to make a banner . This will be taken to each of the schools in the autumn term to remind them that each school is making a difference and contributing to the good work carried out by pupils across the diocese.
