Chalice
Chalice in Schools is a new program that provides Canadian students with practical ways to live their Catholic faith and to advocate for Catholic Social Teachings. This program offers campaigns with activities that encourage students to grow in virtue by learning the values of faith, integrity, commitment, compassion, and respect, and by participating in building the Kingdom of God. At the same time, this program provides Canadian students with an awareness of the challenges youth living in poverty face every day, and tells stories of how Canadian children like themselves bring positive impact to the lives of real children in need. Chalice in Schools will inspire your students to do their part in changing the world.

Chalice in Schools  tableChalice in Schools is a free tool-kit for Catholic educators. It provides multi-media resources to teach students about Christian values and Catholic Social Teaching, through real Chalice stories of charity and achievement. It provides age-appropriate material for all grade levels each focusing on empathy for the poor and "prayer in action".

The resources are customizable, and include the opportunity and/or materials to:
  • Learn recent and true stories of difficulties and triumph from families living in poverty in Chalice sponsor sites
  • Host a Chalice speaker in classrooms (live or by video chat)
  • Inspire social justice campaigns/fundraising acts in students
