The Dixies

Young children from Everton’s Under-10 boys team were visited by the Club’s multi-faith minister ahead of World Religion Day 2018 to learn more about his role and the national day of awareness.  
Henry Corbett joined the budding Blues at Finch Farm to educate them on how the Club accepts people of all faiths and beliefs.

Henry spoke to the young boys about his role at the Club, why he loves what he does, how he respects and honours all faiths, and the various ceremonies he performs.  
The children responded by discussing the importance of being accepting and understanding, while also learning about the key beliefs of other religions.
David Porter, Everton’s Head of Academy Education and Welfare, said: “Everton is an inclusive Club and we live in a multi-cultural society. These visits help our boys understand that different religions are celebrated throughout the world.

“We’re grateful to Henry for taking the time out to speak to our Under-10 boys. 

“Maybe one day these boys will be playing football in the UK or abroad and encountering some of the belief systems they have learned about today.”  
The visit was part of the Club’s celebration of World Religion Day 2018, marked across the globe on Sunday 21 January.
