Bishop Terry Drainey, Bishop of Middlesbrough
I would like young people to come to know Christ Jesus who will lead us in truth to the joy of the Gospel. This award scheme will enable so many young people to grow in discipleship and experience their faith as a lived reality, ever more moving from mind and heart into deed.
The Faith in Action Award gave me the change to explore my faith in a more intimate way with those around me. My experience taught me leadership, determination and most of all, new ways to love.
Bishop Ralph Heskett, Bishop of Hallam and Bishop for Youth
The Faith in Action Award recognises young people as the experts of their own lives, giving them a sense of responsibility and valuing them as having something unique to offer. It helps them connect their life and faith in a tangible manner.
Rebecca Carolan, Moderator, Archdiocese of Liverpool
It has been so humbling to read through the journals and final pieces of work produced by the young people involved on this scheme. I naively thought it wouldn't take long to read them and comment on each individual, but the more hard work I read about, the more determined I was to dedicate as much effort to providing feedback and encouragement to these young people as they dedicated to putting their Faith Into Action. I hope they feel proud of their achievements and use this to strengthen and deepen their Faith.
