Message From Bishop John. Do you support Catholic Schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need to make our voice heard.
The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need you to tell them not to U-turn on their promise to Catholics.
Visit http:// catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap or search for 'Catholic Education' in your search engine to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic schools.
+John
