St Joseph’s school has begun its 2016/2017 session. The children all look very smart and have got straight down to work. The school is a most vital part of our outreach to the community. Many children who are not from Catholic families and have had little or no previous contact with the Church, receive a Catholic education which in some cases transforms their lives. Often a child expresses a wish to become a Catholic, and sometimes the parents too are drawn into a closer relationship with the Church. Please make a point of praying for the children, staff and governors of Saint Joseph’s School.
