Course helps teachers learn about the Catholic faith

Teachers from the schools in Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Multi Academy Trust recently enjoyed participating together in the Diocesan Course in Catholic Studies run by the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology in Cambridge.

The course took place at St Louis Catholic Academy in Newmarket over three twilight sessions and was completed by the presentation of a final 2000-word essay.

The staff benefited from working together to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith and were enthusiastic about the value of this course in bringing them closer together in this core aspect of their professional and personal lives.

To celebrate their achievements staff were invited to Mass followed by supper with Bishop Alan Hopes at the Margaret Beaufort Institute.

Trust CEO Teresa Selvey said: “I was delighted that so many staff from St Felix and St Louis wanted to take part in this course. We all learned a lot more about our faith and about each other and this has had a positive impact on our daily work together. We will certainly be doing more with the Margaret Beaufort Institute in the future. It was superb.”
