Year of Faith – Diocesan Primary Schools Celebrate Harvest

On Tuesday 16th October, World Food Day, primary school children from across our diocese gathered in the St. Anne’s Cathedral to celebrate the gifts of God’s creation, to think about children who don’t have enough to eat and to pray that we might share generously. Schools contributed with readings, mime, dance and wonderful singing.

The highlight of the service was the presentation of the Hunger Cloth. Each school had created a ‘placemat’, symbolic of the fact that they wanted to make a place at the table for a hungry child.  The squares were then assembled to make a magnificent 2 m by 80cm cloth.

At the start of the Year of Faith, The Hunger Cloth is a real and lasting tribute to the commitment of our schools to putting faith into action by working for justice.

Very many thanks to all concerned.
