Feast of The English Martyrs

This week, the children are learning about The English Martyrs as part of our celebrations that are culminating in a special mass being said by Fr Simpson on Friday 3rd May at 9.15 am.

In assembly, we have focused on St Margaret Clitherow, who is one of only three female Martyrs (Anne Line and Margret Ward being the others). In class, the children are researching the history behind their stories and finding out why they were persecuted for their faith and what it means to be a martyr in a modern day context.

Please help your child at home with their research and find out as much as they can on the subject of The English Martyrs. Thanks!
