New Year’s Resolution

‘Make a Difference with CAFOD’

Try something that is calorie-free and not injurious to your health but can be life giving and joyful.  We really need people to go into our Catholic schools to inspire students to act on their sense of justice.  You don’t have to be a teacher to do this role, only a passion for CAFOD’s work and an ability to communicate with children and young people.  Training, travel expenses, resources will be provided.  Contact:

Northampton@cafod.org.uk  or  01844 274 723

 

DIARY STAMPING

If you have been issued with a diary in order to obtain a reference from Fr Christopher for a place in a Catholic school in September 2019, please ensure that your diary is now stamped before and after Mass.  At All Saints Church diaries are stamped at the table at the back of Church, on the left as you enter the main door.

At St Thomas Aquinas Church, diaries are stamped in the Sacristy, on the left hand side by the statue of the Sacred Heart.  Please ensure that there is a recent photograph of your child on the inside cover of the diary.
