On 16 March the Heads of RE from Shrewsbury Diocesan Secondary schools met for their termly conference. The conference convened in the Parish Hall at St Columba’s in Chester to discuss current issues such as Celebrating RE month – a national initiative from the RE Council for England and Wales; The Year of Catholic Education; the Marian Year in our Diocese and Section 48 Inspection procedures.
In the afternoon we welcomed Jo Boyce of CJM music, who gave an informative presentation on the new Missal soon to be introduced. Jo guided us through the historical background to the Missal and highlighted what the changes were going to be and why. She did this with her usual flair and of course great musical talent!
