Lourdes Academy students participate in F.A.I.T.H. Action Assembly

Lourdes Academy, Daytona Beach
Posted April 17, 2012

On March 26, many local parishes came together to fight for justice. They came to the Fighting Against Injustice Towards Harmony (F.A.I.T.H.) Action Assembly located in the First Baptist Church in Daytona Beach. Over 500 people attended from Our Lady of Lourdes parish.

The purpose of the rally was to convince the city commissioners to provide a shelter in Daytona Beach for homeless people in the area. The idea was that restaurants would pay $1 for every $100 dollars they spend (1%) to fulfill this goal. The F.A.I.T.H. rally raised a number of other social justice issues as well. Rachael, an 8th grade student at Lourdes Academy, considered what she would do to promote justice if she had the power to change something about her community “Only the police should have the authority to have a gun, and this will prevent unnecessary killings,” she said.

Participants in the rally also wanted local children to have better reading instruction because many of them were reading at a lower grade level than they should be. Students who were part of the F.A.I.T.H. Action Assembly shared their ideas for improving reading instruction, which included tutoring, extracurricular activities, reading programs, and encouraging kids to read everything from cereal boxes to traffic signs.

When asked why it was so important to attend the Action Assembly, Sierra, a 6th grade student at Lourdes Academy, responded, "When we help people that are in need, we are helping the people of God."
