Faith Ambassadors

Faith Ambassadors


These twelve men were sent out by Jesus with the following instructions: …“Go and preach, ‘The Kingdom of heaven is near!’ Mt 10: 5.7


Each year twelve children from Key Stage 2 are chosen to support and assist Mrs Breslin and Mrs Potter in leading the Catholic Life, Collective Worship and R.E. These children are selected because they are a great example to their friends and actively live out their faith by demonstrating the Gospel Virtues. Once chosen, the children are presented with a scroll inviting them to accept the role and detailing what this vocation involves. Some of the tasks that the children undertake are:

  • Preparing and Leading worship for their friends, providing guidance and support
  • Monitoring classroom prayer areas
  • Awarding Gospel Virtues leaves within their classes
  • Distributing prayer bags and updating resources
  • Reading at Sunday Masses
  • Assisting staff in assemblies
  • Creating resources to be used in prayer
  • Compiling a record of important events in the life of the school
  • Visiting other schools to conduct research and magpie ideas
  • Leading assemblies at other schools to explain the role of a Faith Ambassador
  • Meeting with the Parent Forum and School Council to discuss Charitable Outreach
  • Distributing donations to charity

Many of these tasks are completed by children in their own time and they have also come to school early to lead staff in prayer in a service of thanksgiving.
