St Martin's Youth Group
Our next meeting will be 18th February and it is hoped we will have our Enrolment Mass at 10am on Sunday 25th February. This will be confirmed when Fr Anthony returns. We look forward to seeing you there. For enquiries please see Jennifer Gorman.
 
Lenten Reflections in St Martin's
This year we hope to run a series of reflections on the Stations of the Cross. These will allow us to consider each station in detail, reflect on Scripture and apply the experience of Jesus to our own lives. Each session will last approximately 1 hour and will look at 2 or 3 stations each week. This is not the same as praying the stations as we do in the Church but a prayerful meditation on Christ's journey, making it relevant to today's world and our own busy lives. The stations will continue to be prayed as in previous years. This will take place on Monday evenings in the church hall at 7pm on during Lent. Please see the poster in the porch for further details or speak to Jennifer Gorman.
 
Proposed closure of St Martins Primary School
“When you hear the Archbishop talking about the celebrations of 100 years of Catholic Education you really think about how important St Martin’s is - it’s been here, in Renton, for 118 years”.
Greatly disappointed at the noticeable absence of any representation or statement from the Archdiocese, Wednesday’s meeting to oppose the proposed closure was well attended by a large number of parents, children and other supporters. Proposals were put forward to be considered at the next council meeting on 7th March 2018. Watch this space…
