5-11 October 2020
This week celebrates all who study and work in the 42 Catholic schools of our diocese - Northampton Diocese. They cover seven local authorities, and include two independent schools.
There are approximately 20,000 students, who with all the teaching, pastoral and support staff form this community of Catholic education. Nineteen schools currently form two Multi Academy Trusts, Our Lady Immaculate and St Thomas of Canterbury.
The inspiration for the Week, this year, is St John Henry Newman’s hymn, “Lead kindly light”.
Please pray God’s blessing on all our young people, their families, all the staff, governors and directors. Together, they witness to the presence of God in today’s world.
