A message from Bishop Terence Patrick about Catholic schools

IMGL6090Do 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 all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it. Now we need you to tell them not to u-turn on their promise to Catholics. Please visit the Bishops' Conference website to find an online petition to the Government to urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic schools.
