School Admission Forms for Primary and Secondary Schools

Parents wishing to apply to Catholic Schools for the next academic year are required to obtain a Letter of Catholic Practise from their Parish Priest. This must be requested from your Parish Priest in person and only one per child will be issued. Please come to the Parish Centre for these on

6-8pm Wednesday 10 October
6-7pm Wednesday 17 October

These are issued only to practising Catholics (those who attend weekly Mass). Furthermore, this practise of the Faith will be viewed over a period of time and not just the weeks prior to an application. Parish Priests may also look at the date of Baptism, noting those children who have been Baptised soon after birth as compared to those Baptised with proximity to school age. This is a matter of justice to all involved in applying for places in our Schools. Our schools are often oversubscribed and in order to be fair, preference will justly be given to those who live and practise the Faith as well as who contribute to the life of the Church through the various ways in which that support is given. If you are not a practising Catholic this Certificate will not be given; you may still apply to a Catholic School but your application will considered under another category for Admissions.

CAFOD Family Harvest Fast Day

2.6 billion people in the developing world have gained access to safe drinking water since 1990, but a further estimated 844 million still have no access to clean drinking water and 841 million have to make at least a 30 minute round trip to find safe water.

With this Harvest Fast Day, Cafod will make safe drinking water more available to our brothers and sisters in countries such as Uganda. Cafod asks whether you can eat more simply on 5 October and the money you save could help to mend or install a water point for an entire village: a wonderful way of acting out our faith.

Gift aid envelopes are at the back of the church for those who wish to contribute, along with more information about the work of Cafod. Thank you for your continued help and prayers.

Diocese Restructure

Bishop Alan suggests how we might restructure the Diocese to evangelise effectively. In particular, he suggests our parish will have a priest in residence who also serves St Peter’s in Eastwood. Bishop Alan asks us to study the document and discuss it with family, friends and fellow parishioners.

At our meeting, we will watch Bishop Alan’s video message then discuss it. This is only the first Formal Proposal — we will continue to consult and discuss. If unable to attend, I would appreciate your thoughts in writing to obrjam@btinternet.com or to the parish office. I will convey our thoughts to Bishop Alan.

Many thanks
Francis O’Brien
Steward of the Gospel
