ADVANCE NOTICE

Diaries for 2015 School Admissions

If you have been issued with a diary then please hand it in at the end of Mass on Advent Sunday (30th November 2014) and collect a receipt. Please ensure you have recorded your email address in the diary so we are able to notify you as to whether you have been given a reference.

SCHOOL ADMISSIONS 2016

If your child will be starting School in 2016 and you require a reference from Fr Christopher to support an application to a Catholic School, then you will need to register for a diary which is stamped at each Mass as a record of your child’s Church attendance. There will be a registration evening for parents on Monday 8th December at 7 pm at St Thomas Aquinas Church Meeting Room. Without a completed diary Fr Christopher is unable to issue references. (Diaries are not required for Catholic Secondary Schools).

 

Tess Cavallucci and her family would like to extend their deepest and sincerest thanks for all the Masses, prayers, support for her beloved mother Rosita Cabrera.

God Bless You All
