|Cardinal Vaughan's tomb|
AN HOUR OF PRAYER
THE CARDINAL VAUGHAN MEMORIAL SCHOOL
7 p.m. on Thursday 15th September
Westminster Cathedral Piazza
The Vaughan Parents’ Action Group invites parents, past pupils, friends and supporters to an hour of prayer and hymns and to help us to present our petition to Archbishop Vincent Nichols.
We petition His Grace:
• to nominate two current parents as Foundation Governors of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School;
• to advise and encourage his nominees on the Governing Body to conduct the selection process of a new Head so as to bring about an appointment that will command the support not just of the Archbishop’s nominees but also of other sections across the unhappily divided Governing Body.Comments on this blog?

The Vaughan’s success has always depended on dedicated teachers supported wholeheartedly by Catholic parents. The hostile actions of the Westminster Diocese Education Service – in particular the imposition of its own Director, Paul Barber, on the Governing Body – threaten to undermine this harmonious and fruitful collaboration. Vaughan parents chose the School for its distinctive and unambiguously Catholic ethos. They want it to be cherished and protected. This is why they do not want a new Head to be selected while they are still under-represented on the Governing Body.
THE NEW HEAD WILL BE APPOINTED IN OCTOBER. This Hour of Prayer may be our last opportunity before then to show Archbishop Nichols just how worried we are about the future of our wonderful School.
