CATHOLIC SCHOOLS: Do you support Catholic Schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need to make your voice heard.

The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic Schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledge that this policy siscriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need you to tell them not to u-turn on their promise to Catholics.

Visit http://catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap or search for ‘Catholic Education’ in your search engine to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic Schools

WALK WITH ME; booklet is available at the back of the church Cost only £1.00 please put money the wall box. We urge everyone to buy a copy for your daily Advent reading.

SHOP: is stocked with man Religious booklets, Cards, Calendars, and other gifts.

NEW CANDLE STAND: We have purchased a new candle stand for the Sacred Heart of Jesus Statue as people were placing candles all around the Statue itself and the worry was that this would cause another fire. So we have an electric candle stand which is a much safer option. Also would you please not put lighted candles on the narrow bars by St. Anthony’s Statue as this is very dangerous.
