Our local Catholic College (All Saints') are hosting an Open Evening this Tuesday 24th September 6.00—9.00 pm offering parents (& other interested parties) the opportunity of meeting staff, students &governors as well as looking around the College site.
All Saints is the only faith-based College in the area offering secondary education and this opportunity of taking a look at it should be a 'must' for all Catholic parents examining options for their children's continuing education.
This Sunday is the Church's Day for Life when we are asked to promote—through prayer—dignity for life. In 2005 Pope Francis, then a Cardinal-Archbishop, said: "Jesus teaches us to care for life because it is the image of God, who is absolute life. We cannot announce anything else but life, and from the beginning to the end. All of us must care for life, cherish life, with tenderness, warmth ... to give life is to open our heart, and to care for life is to give oneself in tenderness and warmth for others, to have concern in my heart for others. Caring for life from the beginning to the end. What a simple thing, what a beautiful thing ... So, go forth and don't be discouraged. Care for life. It is worth it !"
