Forming and serving Youth Ministry in England and Wales

Values in Action: Sport and faith resources

Pope Francis recently met with football players, encouraging them to act as role models, setting an example of loyalty, respect, and selflessness. “I have confidence,” he said, “in all the good you can do, especially among young people.” What better time to have a look at some brand new resources connecting sport, young people and faith from the John Paul II Foundation for Sport.
The John Paul II Foundation for Sport is delighted to announce a new series of educational resources Values in Action for KS2/3, KS4 and church/youth work settings. These free and easy to use resources are designed to help explore the wider benefits that participating in sport can bring, and to encourage and celebrate the achievement of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual potential. Curriculum links for teachers are also included.
The John Paul II Foundation for Sport was established by Benedict XVI during his visit to the UK in 2010. It aims, through sport, to enable children and young people to develop their full potential across the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives.
