Invite from Aid to the Church in Need (ACN)
Join schools from the ACN Central Area on Tuesday 21 November for the first of our Annual #ACN Red Wednesday Schools Masses. Our celebrant is Mgr Timothy Menezes, Dean of St Chad’s Cathedral.
Primary and Secondary Schools are invited from across the ACN Central Area (Archdiocese of Birmingham, Dioceses of Leeds, Hallam, Nottingham, Northampton) to join together in praying for persecuted Christians and those in pastoral need.
Staff and students are invited to wear red for the Mass.
St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School & Sixth Form, Birmingham, are providing the music.
This will be our first ACN Annual Mass for Schools in support of #ACN Red Wednesday and an ideal time to link your prayers, learn about those we at ACN help and fundraise to support them in their times of extreme need.
Following the Mass at 12.15pm there will be refreshments in the Grimshaw Room and a chance to learn more about #RW and ACN’s work.
Let us stand in solidarity with the millions of Christians, and those of other Religions, who are persecuted for their faith.
