Welcome to the our Catholic Life page.
Here we include information about the Roman Catholic Faith and how it impacts itself upon the school. Our Lady’s Bishop Eton school is founded upon Catholic principles as highlighted in the poster below.
Part of our Catholic life is supporting charities and worthwhile causes. For CAFOD in particular, we have adopted the following…
In September 2015 the staff and pupils at Our Lady’s Bishop Eton School made a pledge of commitment to support the work of CAFOD.
Our school community at Our Lady’s Bishop Eton pledge to support the work of CAFOD.
We want to support CAFOD in their bid to help make a real difference to the life of some of the world’s poorest people.
Our pupil council asked if we could raise money for CAFOD instead of bringing in Christmas cards for classmates. They suggested that instead children could bring in a homemade card to be displayed in class.
In order to see what a difference our donations will make we set up a ‘Virtual Village’.
Any donations we make to CAFOD will mean we have extra gifts to make the lives of our ‘Virtual Villagers’ better.
Christmas Card Donations
With the money we raised from our Christmas card donations we bought …
Our virtual villagers can now access football as a way of strengthening their community spirit. This gift provides kits and lessons as well as footballs.
We also raised enough money to get some immunisation against common childhood diseases. Well done everyone! Your gifts have made a difference.
During the special Year of Mercy we raised more money to support our villagers. After a workshop with our CAFOD representatives our children in Year 4 and Year 5 collected money in water bottles. We raised enough money to buy 2 water pumps for our virtual village. This means the girls in our village no longer need to spend several hours a day carrying water. They are now able to go to school instead and learn. Find out more at
We were able to offer more support to our villagers after this year’s Brighten up the Harvest focus. Our CAFOD rep Justine, came in to see us on Tuesday 18th October. On Friday 21st October children were asked to wear something bright and either bring in an item for the Foodbank or a donation for CAFOD. This money will go to support people in Bolivia.

Cafod Harvest Update
Thanks to the donations of £190 for Cafod we have been able to buy more resources to enable our villagers to improve their lives.
We have bought two green houses.
The gift of a mini greenhouse will help our villagers get the most from their growing space and put fresh, nutritious food on their dinner tables every day.
We also bought some squiggly worms!
These worms make fantastic compost that boosts crops and helps to increase income for farmers. This means our villagers may be able to grow a little extra food to sell to buy things like medicine or books.
Our villagers have also got two new chickens!
along with training to help look after them, so our villagers can produce eggs to eat and sell.

Who We Are
We are a Roman Catholic parish served by the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers in Childwall, a residential suburb of Liverpool. We have a Catholic population of around 2000 and a Sunday attendance of just under 1000.
Our church is open all day for private prayer, as well as services. Many people come to visit the Shrine to Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. So if you are in the area, why not call in? We are only about three minutes from the Liverpool end of the M62
What we Aim to be
Our dependence on God and his chosen dependence on us is at the heart of what we aim to be: a community of worship, strong in the Gospel values which unite us in fellowship and outreach.
We have a special concern for those among us who are bereaved or lack immediate family support, and strong commitment to solidarity with the poor, both at home and in the developing nations.
What’s in a Name
