Here at Loreto we have a very active groups of students promoting Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation. Pope Francis has made the following comment on our role as stewards. Click on this image (or any other image in this article) if you wish to enlarge it:
Our duty to be stewards of this earth means no only working to create more sustainable environments around us, but also being of service to our communities. Our students have an excellent history of doing this at Loreto, and they have raised many thousands of pounds for community charities. We now feel that our help is needed more than ever!
This year’s JPIC fundraising will begin with collections for the local foodbank. These statistics explains why:
During the week after half term, our students will be encouraged by their JPIC reps and form tutors to bring specific items into school. This is just one way in which we, as Catholics, can live out the Gospel Values.
What sort of products would be gratefully received by the Food Bank?
- Tinned fruits/ Tinned rice pudding
- Jam/ Tinned custard
- Tinned meats/Lentils/Chickpeas
- Shower Gel/Shampoo/Conditioner
- Cereals (but not oats/porridge!)
We thank in advance everyone who supports this initiative!
