Class Saint

St Josephine Bakhita. The Patron Saint of Sudan. Feast day is 8th February. 

Josephine had a happy and prosperous start to life but was kidnapped as a child by slave traders. After 12 years of being bought and sold, she ended up in Italy where she was placed in the custody of the Canossian Sisters of Venice. Whilst there she learnt about God - Josephine said she had always known about God but did not know who He was. Josephine felt called to follow Christ. When the slave owner returned, Josephine refused to leave and the case went to court. It was found that slavery had been outlawed in Sudan before Josephine was born and so she was declared free. She chose to remain with the Sisters often travelling and telling her story to others. 

St Josephine Bakhita, pray for us.

Living in the Wider World: the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, which will help them to fulfil their purpose of making a difference in the world around them. Teaching includes the common good, the human person, social relationships and stewardship. This links to a deeper exploration of the world of work: getting and changing jobs, aspiration and goal setting, gender stereotypes, unemployment and more. This module concludes with teaching about money, in which children are invited to consider what influences our money choices, including God’s call to live generously. Additionally, children will consider why some people have more than others, developing an awareness of fairness and justice.
