Commissioning Mass for Section 48 Inspectors
Bishop Richard Moth thanked all of our Section 48 Inspectors by celebrating Mass with them at The Friary, Crawley. Some inspectors were existing, even long-standing, Section 48 Inspectors and others were new to the role. Bishop Richard thanked each one of them sincerely for being prepared to exercise the important ministry within our Catholic schools and parish communities.
He formally commissioned them as Section 48 Inspectors and invited them all to renew the promises they made when they were baptised.
In recognition of the inspectors having been commissioned as a Section 48 Inspector, they were invited to receive a certificate and a lighted candle as a sign that Christ is the Light of the World.
When they visit schools in our Diocese, they were encouraged by the Bishop to carry the light of Christ with them so that they may be a light to those they have been sent to serve.
