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.
