This year we’ll be bringing thousands of young people together to celebrate the formation of 4 brand new trust families in our diocese. These Catholic Multi-Academy Trusts (CMAT) are made up of both secondary and primary schools from the 5 counties in the Nottingham Diocese.
The Our Lady of Lourdes CMAT, The St. Thomas Aquinas CMAT, The St. Thérèse of Lisieux CMAT and The St. Ralph Sherwin CMAT are all starting out this year and we’re going to celebrate this amazing opportunity to live, work and worship as big Catholic Communities – all part of the Nottingham Diocese.
To help us celebrate these events were asking each school to bring a special postcard telling everyone all about your amazing school. It needs to be single sided as these will hopefully be displayed on walls all around the diocese! We’re looking for A1 postcards (that’s 59.4 x 84.1 cm) and you can download a handy template and activity sheet with instructions below!
* If your in The St Thérèse of Lisieux Trust then this is NOT for your welcome Mass on Monday the 1st of October!)
To prepare for these launch events there will be some special projects in school and some brand new music to learn! The first set of music is our brand new mass setting and you can jump to them below!
You can also download a hymn sheet with all of the songs we’ll be using to help you practice!
The other songs have been specially chosen to bring us together and celebrate our new communities. You can lean them below and download the backing tracks to use at school. All these songs have sheet music freely available on line but due to copyright we can’t post them here!
