Certificate of Catholic Practice - A Message from the Church

We are blessed in this Parish with very good schools and it is encouraging that so many of you want a Catholic education for your children. It is great to meet you, the parents, when you come to get the Certificate of Catholic Practice (CCP) signed and to see that you are a committed and practising family. It is very easy, and indeed a joy, to sign for many of you that we know from meeting at Mass and at other Church functions.

A very real problem that we the priests here face is that we do not recognise some parents that come to have CCPs signed. This may be due to the fact that we have missed meeting some of you. To overcome this, we would like to encourage you to make yourselves known to us at Church. It is very difficult for us the priests, and we think unfair, to be asked to sign a form that states that a family is a practising family, when we do not know them. To all you mothers and fathers that make such a great effort to support and bring your children to Church on a regular basis we say thank you and assure you of our continued support and admiration for your commitment.

Priests will be available at the Parish Centre to sign CCPs on:

  • Tues 20 November from 6.00-8.00 pm and
  • Wed 21 November from 4.00-6.00 pm.

Please bring your child with you when asking the Priest to sign your form. Please note that these are the only appointments for form signing. Please do not approach the presbytery at other times – priests are often unavailable and the office is unable to accept forms in their absence. (If you do not attend this church, please approach your usual parish to complete your CCP.)
