The Diocese co-operates fully with CSAS, the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service, which aims to help the Church become an example of best practice in the Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, and develop a "culture of vigilance" to ensure that children and vulnerable adults in our care are kept safe from harm.

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS TO LOSE HALF THE CHILDREN: 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 is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing their children to attend. They acknowledge that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it. But they now wish to U-turn on their promise. Please visit http://catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap or search for ‘Catholic Education’. Then contact the Government via the website. It’s very easy, c. 3 minutes!

DECEMBER’S COFFEE MORNING CANCELLED: Please note that December’s coffee morning has been rescheduled to Thursday 4 January 2018, when the monthly collection for the Archbishop’s Seminary Fund will take place.
