Week beginning 20th March 2017

Lent 2017

This week is the third full week of the season of Lent.  Lent is the forty days of preparation before the greatest Christian festival, Easter.  We are trying our best to observe the three duties of the Christian during Lent, Prayer, Fasting and Alms-giving. On Friday 24th March 2017 we are having a non-uniform day in order to raise money for CAFOD (Catholic Fund for Overseas Development) and Fr. Hudson’s which is the social care agency of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.   Pupils should bring in £1 to their House Tutor by Friday to wear non uniform.

Our pupils will get a chance to have receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Friday 31st March 2017 when through confession can repair their relationship with God and others.  I am grateful to our school chaplain, Fr. Allen Morris, for organizing local priests to hear confession.
