TO FOLLOW Frank Hampson ? For years, right up to his recent death, Frank has kept our candles in good order, cleaned the candlesticks (not just polishing), and polished all brasses. It has been one of the really valuable acts of service to the parish. Will YOU offer to take it on, please?

HOPING TO GO TO BISHOP PAUL’S ORDINATION ?
TICKETS FOR Bishop Paul’s ORDINATION,
Monday 9th April 2018 - 11.30 am
We’d like everyone to be able to attend, but there isn’t room. Each parish is allocated 2 or 3 tickets; people without tickets will not get in. If you would like to go, print your NAME AND PHONE NUMBER on one of the slips in the church porch. The names will go into a draw. If you are 25 or under, indicate your age on your slip of paper, because the “25-and-under” names will go into a separate draw, to ensure the younger age is reasonably represented.
The draw will be made here on 25th March.

***********************************************************
Our Bishop asks. “Do you support Catholic schools

and the right of Catholics to send their children to them?
Then we need you to make your voice heard”

.The government had promised to let new schools be built
to take in the Catholic children who in some areas are without places.
Now they may say they must accept 50% non-Catholics,
even when Catholics are clamouring for places.
They acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics
and promised to abandon it;
now we need to tell them to keep that promise!

Please visit: http://catholicnews.org.uk/
or search for ‘Catholic Education’,

Please email the Government and urge them to remove this “cap” ,
(or write to the Education Minister)
