Faith in Action Award - CYMFED National Catholic Award Scheme


The Faith in Action Award encourages young people through recognising, rewarding and celebrating their active faith lived out through service and reflection. The Award helps them connect their life and faith in a tangible manner.

In journeying through the Award, young people should experience a deepening of their relationship with God and find themselves exploring that relationship. It is hoped that through their relationship and action, others will see God's love through them. 

We were delighted that our ALL our Year 6 pupils achieved their PIN Level Faith in Action Award in 2023! 

Faith in Action Award 2023

Vision - Overview

Faith is a gift from God. He invites all of us to deep our relationship with Him. Through the Faith in Action Award, the aim is to enable young people to respond to the inviation in active faith through service to others and reflection on that service. 

Service and Reflection - what's involved?

The Faith in Action Award rewards young people's active service to others in their local and wider community. Young people accrue credits of service and reflect on that service in the context of the teachings of the Catholic Church throughout their award journey. 

Young People - who's it for?

Young people aged 10-18 years old (Year 6-13). At St Paul of the Cross our Year 6 pupils take part in the Faith in Action Award through working with Hope Academy and Animate Youth. The Faith in Action Award is accessible to, and inclusive of, all young people, regardless of academic ability. 

PIN Level Award - Discovery

This is for our Year 6 pupils allowing them to discover how faith shapes lives, thus acting as a stepping ston to the higher level awards. We undertake the PIN Level Award as a whole class group. Having taken early steps in establishing a personal relationship with God, participants begin to see that this relationship has an outward and visible effect upon them and those around them. As they seek to know God better, they become aware of others, of all ages, are trying to do the same. This draws us together in community. Seeking to serve the community helps us to discover even more about ourselves, each other and God.
