If not then you hopefully can communicate the ID’s below.

Record of Mass Attendance

These sheets are for those seeking the Catholic Certificate of Practice (see previous blog) or wishing to join courses for Baptism, 1st Holy Communion and Confirmation.

They are available each week as you enter. Complete one per child and drop the completed form into the box provided as you leave Church. Do not dispose of the Attendance cards we used before lockdown!

Fr. Blaj will have to rely on these to help his CCP decisions in October for Secondary School entry, especially as a meeting will be impossible. The method for issuing the CCPs will be explained nearer the time.

Catholic Certificate of Practice 2020-21

Priests have received this advice, which seems to come from the Catholic Education Service:

“We believe that the current Guidance to Clergy on issuing Certificates already contains a reasonable amount of flexibility to allow clergy to exercise proper pastoral judgment in each case, taking into account all of the circumstances. The extraordinary situation we all find ourselves in this year will form part of the circumstances of each case. Ultimately, the priest is being asked to do no more than certify whether or not the child comes from a practising Catholic family to the best of his knowledge and belief, in all the circumstances.”

If you are making an application for your child to go to Secondary School in 2021, there will be an opportunity to obtain a CCP in October. Please check in the newsletter each week.
