This Sunday we welcome nine children with their families as at Mass they receive Holy Communion for the first time. An occasion of taking another step on being a follower of Jesus. These children had commenced their preparation in 2019 before there was an unexpected break. Most are now in Year 5 upwards. The Mass will be an opportunity for us all to remember when we first welcomed Jesus as we participated in mass.
A larger group of Year 3 & 4 children continue their preparation with a meeting next Sunday 8th May.
This is usually the feast of St Joseph the Worker. Citizens UK which has a local Group are advocating for the Real Living Wage to be paid to all workers in the care sector – in nursing & care homes and care agencies. A Cardinal Newman Student speaks up in a video below:
