School Links

On Tuesday 26th June 2018, Hope in the Future was launched in all of our Diocesan Schools and Colleges at a event which Celebrated the Gifts and Talents of Children and Young People. The day finished with a ‘Liturgy of Mission’ led by Bishop John where each school received a blessed San Damiano Cross and prayer cards. On returning to school the Chaplaincy Teams launched Hope in the Future in their School Communities and started looking at ways to work more closely with their parish.
