Supporting Charities in Lent
Nugent Good Shepherd Appeal
Nugent is a local charity that provides services to support the poor and vulnerable in the Liverpool Archdiocese. We are proud to support Nugent throughout the year and especially during Lent in the Good Shepherd Appeal.
Every year Bellerive raises money for Nugent by holding a Spring Fayre, we are unable to do this because of COVID-19. But as the children return to school we will be asking for donations in our Nugent collection boxes so we can still support this charity that does amazing work.
CAFOD Walk for Water Campaign
Why not challenge yourself to walk 10,000 steps everyday in Lent and ask people to sponsor you. The money raised will help developing countries have access to clean, safe drinking water. You can set up an online fundraising page and invite your friends and family to donate.
You can join the FCJ Sisters (Sr MaryAnne, Sr Lynne and Sr Els) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on Facebook live at 8.15pm. Search FCJ Centre St Hugh’s.

The FCJ Society was founded by Marie Madeleine in 1820 in Amiens, France. Marie Madeleine was a widow with a young child and in searching for a school for her son, Marie Madeleine found the Jesuits at St Acheul, Amiens and began a journey which led to her founding the FCJ Society (faithful companions of Jesus). A foundation was opened in Amiens and the society grew.
The FCJ’s are now an international Society of Roman Catholic Sisters living in Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas. To find out more about the FCJ Sisters please visit: www.fcjsisters.org
Chaplaincy at Bellerive
Our Chaplaincy is rooted in the tradition and Ignatian spirituality of the FCJ Sisters and our school community continues the work started by Marie Madeleine. The FCJ Values of Excellence, Justice, Dignity, Hope, Companionship and Gentleness are at the heart of all we do.
Students start each day with collective worship in form time and there is afternoon prayer. There are many opportunities for fundraising throughout the school year. Special feast days and occasions are a cause for celebration and involve the whole school. We have excellent partnerships with our local parishes and embrace working collaboratively with our local churches.
All students are welcome to take part in Chaplaincy activities. FCJ Group and Faith in Action are two of our current chaplaincy groups. Students should see Mrs Henry if they are interested in joining any of these groups.
It is important that young people have the opportunity to take responsibility for their faith, therefore we offer activities out of school for pupils to engage with the Church and wider Catholic Community.
The Chapel is a beautiful sacred space in our school that offers the whole community a place of prayer. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the chapel, making it a very special place in our school. Small Masses are celebrated here and it is an inclusive place at lunch times for pupils looking for quiet or who wish to pray and is a place of companionship.
