What is the award?:

The CAFOD LiveSimply award is an opportunity for Catholic communities – parishes, schools, religious orders and chaplaincies – to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”.

The video below shows how catholic communities get involved in the award, much like how we plan ours to.

The LiveSimply award is earned by communities and schools who can show how they have been living:

  • simply

  • in solidarity with people in poverty

  • sustainably with creation.

The award celebrates what you have already done and inspires you to do more. It helps your community to live, not just more simply, but also more fully.

Within our own parish: 

Here in Guernsey, we are following the 3 pillars of the award, which are to:

.  Live Simply – various activities are being planned to contribute to this section of the award.
.  Live Sustainably with Creation – various activities are being planned to contribute to this section of the award.
.  Live in Solidarity with the poor – we are working towards this with our Big Lent Walk that started on the 22nd of February 2023 , the start of Lent.
