Church brings us together

23rd March 2001 at 00:00
Having read the letters responding to the proposed expansion of church schools, I should like to add weight to the argument that their number should be increased.

Far from causing division, in my experience as a careers adviser going into a Roman Catholic high school, I have found they have brought together students from other faiths as well as those from across the Prtestant Catholic divide.

This is not surprising in the light of the fact that Jesus was born of a Hebrew mother, but rejoiced in the faith of a Syrian woman and of a Roman solider.

He also welcomed the Greeks who sought him as well as the man from Africa who carried his cross.
