At The Catholic Herald we want our articles to provoke spirited and lively debate. We also want to ensure the discussions hosted on our website are carried out in civil terms.
All commenters are therefore politely asked to ensure that their posts respond directly to points raised in the particular article or by fellow contributors, and that all responses are respectful.
A prayerful and dignified vigil. The Bishops and their appointed governorshave no shame.No surprises there!
I was at the Vigil. It was very moving to pray the rosary and sing hymns with 600 parents on the streets of London; an experience I will never forget. The behaviour of the diocese has caused deep sadness ; I know so many good and faithful Catholics whose faith has been sorely challenged by the behaviour of the Westminster Education Service. Please pray for the school and visit the Vaughan Parents’ Action Group website for the background to the dispute. We must fight to save Catholic Education.
