Mass Attendance Record Cards – For all children starting or changing school in September 2020: Please collect one of the ‘Mass attendance record’ cards from the back of Church and fill in your names & school if applicable.  Starting from the weekend of 25/26th May, you will need to bring your card with you to Mass and get a priest to sign it.  For many Catholic schools, there is a requirement that you attend Mass regularly and as many of these schools are over-scribed, being able to prove that you regularly attend Mass and are committed to bringing your children in the Catholic faith, many parishes are using these schemes to not only assist them when completing the forms at application time but also may be vital for your successful application to these schools.
