Now that details of the allocation of invitations to parishes have been provided, it is clear that, after careful consideration of the length of the day, and in the interest of safety, no allocation of invitations is being made for primary school groups. Parents who wish to take their own children to the Mass should be able to obtain the required number of pilgrim passes, as part of parish pilgrimage groups.
NB Invitations are being made available for secondary schools groups – and further details will be provided as soon as possible.
You are advised to check this website regularly to keep in touch with arrangements which will emerge in the coming weeks. There will be further bulletins from SCES before the start of the new term, advising further of arrangements.
This is the seventh in a series of news bulletins designed to keep schools (and others) informed of arrangements for the Papal Visit. To see previous bulletins, click here. Please note the official website for the UK Papal Visit: www.thepapalvisit.org.uk
