St Maria Goretti ORA PRO NOBIS

Please, any British Catholics who are worried about the moves by our Government to make sex education compulsory for children as young as five years old, sign this petition to our Bishops, as soon as possible - THE VERY IDEA OF THIS SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ALLOWED.
Here is what the petition says -
Petition to the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales
Do you wish to sign this petition? Add your name to the list here .
We, the undersigned, respectfully petition the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales to protest in the strongest terms against the latest Government proposals which seek to make sex and relationship education compulsory for children from age 5 upwards. We believe, in line with the constant teaching of the Church, that such education at so early an age could only have a severely detrimental effect on the children involved, on family life and on society in general. We call upon you as our Shepherds in the Faith to issue an authoritative statement on the Church's teaching on this matter, and to declare that you, as our Bishops, oppose any attempt to undermine the sanctity of the parent-child relationship, the innocence of the child, and our God-given parental authority in such crucial matters.

Thank you for your support.
