About Our Faith-based Approach
The Compassion Series’ faith-based interactive classroom programs and speaking sessions for children, youth, educators and education leaders, are shaped and coloured by “the fruit of the spirit:” love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control (Galatians 5:22, 23).
Presented from a contemporary Christian worldview, The Compassion Series’ faith-based sessions are ideal for Catholic and Christian schools looking to inspire children to their full-life potential, living out the goodness and genuineness of faith in a complex world.
Our faith-based sessions aim to gently and meaningfully challenge children and youth to recognize how they look at their neighbour and their world, and where there is assumption, judgment or fear, to choose instead the lens of compassion and understanding. Compassion Series sessions are ideal launching pads for meaningful and creative follow up lessons and assignments in writing, art, drama, history and more.
What you can expect
All specialty presentations are designed in consultation and agreement with the host educator or administration. Whether we are looking closely at specific grace and social-justice matters around homelessness, disabilities or indigenous peoples, or broader conversations on service, mercy and kindness, the aim of The Compassion Series faith-based sessions is to invite children and young people to be a generation that transforms society by living out their faith with true compassion.
