News from SS. Peter & Paul School

 

Governors of Our Blessed Saints Federation (St Peter & Paul's school is within the Federation) wish to advise parishioners that, over the coming academic year, the current leadership structure will remain in place. We were unsuccessful in appointing an Executive Headteacher: however, we are fortunate in that Miss Staniforth is happy to continue in her role of Acting Headteacher until July 2022. Miss Staniforth has worked extremely hard, providing leadership in difficult circumstances and Governors have been pleased with progress seen in school. 

The time ahead will give Governors sufficient time to undertake a strategic review, to determine the most appropriate structure which best fits the needs of our schools in the coming years. We are pleased that we have been able to establish an agreement with the St Francis & St Clare Multi Academy Company (based in Wolverhampton: it has 10 primaries and 2 secondary schools within the academy chain) for it to provide advice to Governors and Senior Leaders. This relationship, together with our partnerships with the Shrewsbury Diocese and Telford & Wrekin Council, will provide a useful platform from which to build our future structure. 

Synod A two-year 'synodal' process is taking place in the Catholic Church from now that culminates in the final Synod Gathering of Bishops in Rome in October 2023. The overall theme is "For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission". For more Information go to  (https://bit.ly/3zXt4gx) https://bit.ly/2Tt6ope       Pope Francis tweeted: Dear Brothers and Sisters, have a good journey!  May we be open to the Holy Spirit’s surprises, the grace of encounter, reciprocal listening and discernment, joyfully convinced that, even as we seek the Lord, He always comes with his love to meet us first.

Please support Missio in helping missionaries to work alongside communities throughout the world that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief. Join in on this special day, that unites Catholics all over the world in prayer and celebration of our Church's mission to share God's love with all people.

Gospel   Mark 10:46-52Go; your faith has saved you

As Jesus left Jericho with his disciples and a large crowd, Bartimaeus (that is, the son of Timaeus), a blind beggar, was sitting at the side of the road. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout and to say, ‘Son of David, Jesus, have pity on me.’ And many of them scolded him and told him to keep quiet, but he only shouted all the louder, ‘Son of David, have pity on me.’ Jesus stopped and said, ‘Call him here.’ So they called the blind man. ‘Courage,’ they said ‘get up; he is calling you.’ So throwing off his cloak, he jumped up and went to Jesus. Then Jesus spoke, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ ‘Rabbuni,’ the blind man said to him ‘Master, let me see again.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your faith has saved you.’ And immediately his sight returned and he followed him along the road.

Commentary There are several remarkable things about this story. Firstly, the scene is just when Jesus is leaving Jericho. Jericho is about three hours’ walk from Jerusalem, up a great, rocky canyon. When you leave Jericho you know you are just about coming to Jerusalem. It is the last village on the way, and the excitement of the great revelation of Jesus at the Passion is already upon them. The cured beggar dances on the way with them. Secondly, he is the only person in Mark to call Jesus ‘Son of David’, drawing attention to his messianic entry into Jerusalem. Thirdly, in Mark Jesus says ‘Your faith has cured you’ only twice. The first time was to the woman with a haemorrhage. Now Bartimaeus shows the same stubborn courage in shouting despite the attempts to silence him. So they both show with courage that they really do put their trust in Jesus and are confident that he will help. If our faith is to save us, it needs to be real, courageous and stubborn. Lukewarm, tentative faith is not enough.    Henry Wansborough OSB

Saints of the Week St Chad & St Cedd  Chad - 672 was educated at Lindisfarne under Aidan. He became abbot of Lastingham and was chosen to be bishop of Northumbria, but St Wilfrid contested his appointment, and Chad obediently withdrew. He was then sent as bishop to Mercia, where he founded the see of Lichfield. He insisted on walking, as the Apostles had done. His ministry there was very short (he died at Lichfield on 2 March 672) but he was immediately revered as a saint because of the holiness of his life, his outstanding humility, and his dedication to preaching of the Gospel. The Catholic Cathedral in Birmingham is dedicated to St Chad. Cedd (- 664), like his brother Chad, was educated at Lindisfarne under Aidan. He founded many monasteries and was sent as a bishop to evangelise the East Saxons. Unlike his brother, he rode on horseback. establishing his see at Bradwell in Essex. He was present at the Synod of Whitby. He died at the monastery at Lastingham which he had founded, in Yorkshire on 26 October 664, of the plague.
