The Bishop of Salford is calling on young artists from schools around the diocese to get creative to draw, illustrate or paint the Laudato Si Centre’s new logo.
The diocese is home to the Laudato Si Centre which, when open, will welcome visitors to learn about protecting our planet and will encourage all to share actions and ideas ‘to protect our common home’ following on from the letter that Pope Francis wrote to every person on the planet – Laudato Si.
In order to take part, entrants must attend a Catholic school in the Salford diocese. There will be three age groups and three prizes: two runner ups and one overall prize. Each prize winner will receive a bookshop voucher for £15 and the overall winner’s logo will be digitally transformed and turned into the Laudato Si Centre logo.
The diocese would like entrants to draw a logo based on what the Laudato Si Centre means to them. The winning design will be transformed into a digital design which will be front and centre at the Laudato Si Centre.
