As part of our Centenary celebrations, St Elizabeth’s raised funds for four charities.
The Centenary charities chosen by St Elizabeth’s school were:
St Vincent de Paul Society
The St Vincent de Paul Society is an international Christian voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage by providing practical assistance to those in need – irrespective of ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender. It seeks, in the spirit of justice and charity, to help those who are suffering poverty in whatever form.
Mary’s Meals is a charity that has set us school feeding projects in some of the world’s poorest communities. It started by feeding 200 children in Malawi and now provides free school meals to over 1,000,000 children worldwide per day.
CAFOD is the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales and part of Caritas International.
Across the world they bring hope and compassion to poor communities, standing side by side with them to end poverty and injustice. They work with people of all faiths and none.
Inspired by Scripture and Catholic Social Teaching, and the experiences and hopes of people living in poverty, CAFOD works for a safe, sustainable and peaceful world.
The Pastoral Care Project
The aim of the Pastoral Care Project is to raise the awareness of the spiritual needs of the frail and elderly, enabling carers to support them in their journey to the fullness of life. This Christian charity helps people who are aged, ill or disabled, especially those with dementia related illnesses.
At St. Elizabeth’s School we regularly organise events to raise money for different charities. Visit our Catholic Life Charity Work page for more information.
