Good Shepherd Appeal
for Schools, 2024


The Good Shepherd Appeal has a long-standing tradition in the Diocese of Hallam, and is the key fundraising initiative for Caritas Hallam (formerly known as Hallam Caring Services). Caritas Hallam is the social action arm of the Diocese of Hallam.

Although Caritas offers support to the many different social action projects around the Diocese, the Good Shepherd Appeal primarily fundraises for the provision of Counselling Services in Schools.

These services are used in schools by schools, to benefit:

    • the children of those schools,
    • the families of those children, and
    • the staff working with the children.

The theme of this year’s Good Shepherd Appeal in Schools is:

Every Day Miracles

For our 2024 Appeal, we will be encouraging Primary and Secondary Catholic Schools in the Diocese to:

  • Discuss how God works miracles in our lives, every day, by using the people around us; that love is the ‘currency’ of miracles – step out in the name of love and service of others, and God will use that to bring about positive changes to people’s lives
  • Explore the lives of three Saints, all called Teresa: St Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582), St Thérèse of Lisieux (1873-1897); and St Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
  • Fundraise for the work of Caritas in the Schools and communities of our Diocese.


The Good Shepherd Appeal Celebration 2024 will take place at St Peter-in-Chains in Doncaster, date and time to be confirmed shortly. All Schools are warmly invited to attend, but we will try to arrange for this event to be livestreamed to enable everyone to join in.


Full Resources for this Appeal will be available from 1st - 6th February 2024.


Have no doubt: your fundraising to support the work of Caritas Hallam is very much needed! The children and families of our own communities, need you. So please help us to raise these vital funds so that we can meet the ever-increasing mental health needs of our communities.

Thank you!
