Sharing the Peace of Christ
And may the peace of Christ
reign in your hearts,
because it is for this
that you were called together in one body.
(Colossians 3:15)

To begin the school year, all tutor groups have been asked to write a Peace Pledge which will encourage the school community to actively share the peace of Christ throughout the year.
Inspired by St Paul’s Letter to the Colossians and a call to action from Pope Francis, pupils and their tutors have written their pledges and they are on display in the school foyer.
The pledges are not just words… the school community will strive to live out the actions written on them as the year progresses, sharing Christ’s peace with their communities and the world.

Pope Francis says this:
“Peace firstly means there are no wars … but it also means that there is friendship between all, that every day a step ahead is made for justice, so that there are no more children who are hungry, that there are no more sick children who do not have the possibility of receiving healthcare. Doing all of this means making peace. Peace involves work, it is not about staying calm and doing nothing. No!True peace means working so that everyone has a solution to the problems, to the needs, that they have in their land, in their homeland, in their family, in their society.”
