CAR PARKING at church. It makes it difficult, even impossible, if some park outside designated lines. Please exercise charity.

Maybe arrive earlier in case you need to find a place further away on street?

***********************************************************
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)
