Live Simply Workshop logo

The Live Simply Award Scheme is a national scheme administered by CAFOD.

To obtain the award, parishes have to demonstrate how they:

  • Live ‘Simply’
  • Live ‘Sustainably’
  • Live ‘in solidarity with the poor’

The scheme provides wonderful opportunities for both individuals and parish communities to reflect more deeply about their faith, and particularly how they care for the earth and care for the poor.
The Commission, with financial support from CAFOD, are putting on a workshop to enable parishioners from across the Diocese to explore how this scheme could be used in their parishes. Come to this workshop to find out more about the scheme and think about how it might work in your parish community.

This interactive workshop will provide opportunities to hear from people in parishes that have already gained the award, hear about the sorts of activities they undertake (it is an ongoing commitment) and understand how working towards the award means engaging with people from across your parish community.

There is a separate programme for young people aged 8-15.

For children under 8 there are limited crèche places.

Bring the whole family along – a simple lunch is included.

Tea and Coffee and soft drinks available from 10:15 with a prompt 10:30 start to the workshops.

Registration is essential.
