A Word of Scripture

Remember it is God himself who assures us all, and you, of our standing in Christ, and has anointed us, marking us with his seal and giving us the pledge, the Spirit, that we carry in our hearts.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22

Catholic Schools Applications

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.
