Secondary Teachers and RE Qualifications Opportunity.
This is a new University of Glasgow course, pastorally supported by the diocese, and open to any RC secondary teacher. It can be taken while you are still in work and will confer the additional teaching qualification of RE specialist. If you are interested please email bishop John asap a
t bishopjohn@rcdop.org.uk for info and advice.

In light of the severe shortage of RE specialists Bishop John has been working with SCES and the University of Glasgow to re-establish this course, which already has eleven signed up, but needs fifteen for viability to go ahead in the coming academic year. Diocesan teachers please do give this consideration so
that we can ensure the effective, ongoing religious education of our young people at our schools.

Sign Petition to Oppose recent proposals for Abortions Up Till Birth.
The BMA, (UK Doctors' Association) this week voted for the legalisation of abortion up to birth!!! It means abortions could be carried out legally anywhere, for any reason, at any stage of pregnancy. Sex-selective abortions, mail-order abortions and the distribution of abortion pills on school premises would all become perfectly legal. The conscience clause would also fall, so health professionals might be forced to carry out abortions or lose their licenses to practice.

If you are against this please take a minute to sign this online petition, http://citizengo.org/en-gb/lf/714G7- bma-must-not-support-abortion-birth
