Caritas Ambassadors

Our older children were given the opportunity to apply to become Caritas Ambassadors. We appointed 8 Caritas Ambassadors, who are enthusiastic and hold faith and social fairness close to their hearts.  

Our Caritas Ambassadors are activists for social change, and are ambassadors of Catholic Social Teaching at Our Lady & St Gerard's. Their mission is to make a positive difference by showing 'love in action', raising awareness and encouraging others. The pupils are committed to their roles and received training from Caritas at the start of their journey as ambassadors. They understand that 'Caritas' means charity in Latin and they organise events to support local charities. They believe that supporting them can help to make a positive difference to people's lives. 



Catholic Social Teaching

Our Caritas ambassadors focus on the Catholic Social Teaching Principles.
The video below explains what Catholic Social teaching is...

Caritas Award 

Within Salford Diocese schools can award children the Caritas in Action Award when they demonstrate the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.


The Ambassadors held an assembly to ask everyone to put their love into action and help those in need.  As a school we gathered items for the food bank. We then met some of the volunteers to discuss their roles and say a huge Thank you for the work they do. 

Christmas cards 

Our Ambassadors wanted to help people who may have been feeling isolated and lonely at Christmas. We asked others in school to design and make a Christmas cards, filled with positive messages that were delivered to local care homes. 

St Joseph's Penny

Our Ambassadors once again called everyone into action to help support people in our community experiencing homelessness, poverty and discrimination. We wanted to help them transform their lives with dignity. They sent home collection boxes and invited others to be creative and make their own from recycled materials. 

We managed to raise £316 by collecting money boxes.
