At St Michael & St John's, we strive to ensure that everyone who comes through our door is made to feel welcome.
Our staff work hard to ensure that our faith is at the heart of everything we do and reflects our ethos.
Following the example of Jesus, together we learn, love and respect one another to be the best we can be.
The staff team are dedicated to every stage of your child’s development in the faith and through prayer life, vocational awareness, Religious Education lessons, charitable works, Sacramental preparation, we work with you, the parent, and the Parish to make sure children growing in God’s love are prepared to live life to the fullest as Catholics who have an astute understanding of their personal and social responsibility and British Values as faith filled and giving citizens of tomorrow.
LATEST RE INSPECTION
We are delighted to be taking part in our annual appeal supporting Caritas during Lent, raising money for children, mums and dads across the Diocese of Salford who need help. Not everyone has the things they need to make a happy home, but Caritas, through the St Joseph’s Penny Appeal, reaches out to those vulnerable children and families in our communities. They offer support in lots of different ways – from food parcels to counselling sessions, from Christmas presents to giving young mums and their babies somewhere safe to live; Caritas means something different to everyone we help.
This year we are asking parent/carers to make a donation through a special JustGiving page.
May was the Month Of Mary
May is the month where we remember and honour Mary.
Some ideas you can try at home:
- Learn about the rosary and the different mysteries
- Pray the Rosary Daily as a family
- Write your own prayer devotions
- Make pictures, paintings or collages of your class devotion to Mary
- Research other devotions to Mary
- Sing hymns to Our Lady (Marian hymns)
- Make your own altar to our lady at home
- Grow some flowers or make flowers using crafts
We have made a Lenten video so you can see what our classes and G.I.F.T Team have been doing during Lent. Our charitable giving was for Cafod and St Joseph's Penny. Thank you for your wonderful support.
