Advent Reconciliation Day - Confessions at St Wilfrid's

Do you support Catholic Schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need you to make your voice heard.

The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic Schools from allowing Catholic children to attend. They have acknowledged the 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 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.

Ecumenical Bible Study Group 

The group began as a joint venture between the neighbouring churches of St George and St Lawrence but is open to everyone.  It meets several times a year for short courses of about six weeks to study aspects of the Bible or the Faith.  The meetings are held in St George's parish, each one lasts an hour and ends with the Office of Compline.  The group has just finished its study of the Letter to the Hebrews and a further course is being planned for early in 2018.
