Live Simply Award

The LiveSimply award is an opportunity for Catholic communities – parishes, schools, religious orders and chaplaincies – to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”. In Carleton House we have commited to working towards this award as a whole school.

What is the LiveSimply award?

The LiveSimply award is earned by communities and schools who can show how they have been living:

  • simply
  • in solidarity with people in poverty
  • sustainably with creation.

It helps our community to live, not just more simply, but also more fully.

What is Laudato Si?

Laudato Si’ is an encyclical (a letter) written by Pope Francis in June 2015 and addressed not only to all Catholics, but to everyone in the world. Laudato Si’ – On the Care of our Common Home, is a real challenge to us all.

Pope Francis teaches us that a right relationship with the Earth and the whole of creation is as much part of the Church’s moral teaching as a right relationship with God and our neighbour.

Laudato Si’ urges us to change our lifestyle, to treat nature with respect, to be deeply aware of the interconnectedness of all God’s creation and to live simply and without wastefulness.

Our School Actions

In Carleton House our actions towards our Live Simply Award include; a walk to school campaign, a litter pick, fair trade, support for the foodbank as well as many others.
