Corpus Christi Church and School Grounds
As work on the extension of the school comes to an end we as Church and School will be in a better position to address
the condition of the service road and the exterior lighting. We are probably best to wait for the cold weather to pass before we start any major work on the road. In the meantime you are asked to be vigilant of pot holes and take extra care.

Education Sunday: 1st February
This Sunday is Education Sunday. On this day we are reminded why Education
and Catholic Schools are important in the life and mission of the Church.
The first reason why Catholic schools exist is to place Christ and the teachings
of the Catholic Church at the centre of peoples lives. The second reason is to
assist parents in fulfilling their role as educators. The third reason is to be at the
service of the local Church and finally the fourth reason is to contribute to the
creation of a society that is highly educated, skilled and cultured.
On this Sunday let us pray for all those who teach and work in and for our
schools. May they be given every respect as they continue to bring variety, joy
and inspiration to those children who have been entrusted to their care, and
may their lives proclaim the Gospel Values to all who meet them.
