The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ
And the love of God
And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit
Be with us all evermore
Give in to God: resist the devil, and he will run away from you. The nearer you go to God, the nearer he will come to you. Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up.
A Thought for Today
Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work, my feet to go your way, my eyes to see as you do, my tongue to speak your words, my mind that you may think in me, my spirit that you may pray in me, above all I give you my heart that you may love in me your Father and all mankind, I give you my whole self that you may grow in me, so that it is you, Lord Jesus, who live and work and pray in me.

Certificate of Catholic Practice
Means a certificate issued by the family’s parish priest (or the priest in charge of the church where the family attends Mass) in the form laid down by the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
It will be issued if the priest is satisfied that at least one Catholic parent or carer (along with the child, if he or she is over seven years old) have (except when it was impossible to do so) attended Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation for at least five years (or, in the case of the child, since the age of seven, if shorter).
It will also be issued when the practice has been continuous since being received into the Church if that occurred less than five years ago.
It is expected that most Certificates will be issued on the basis of attendance.
A Certificate may also be issued by the priest when attendance is interrupted by exceptional circumstances which excuse from the obligation to attend on that occasion or occasions. Details of these circumstances can be found in the guidance issued to priests.
