Being Trustworthy People
This coming Sunday's Gospel reminds us about the value of being trustworthy people. We can show this by making good choices - especially when it comes to the use of money. When we give God first place in our lives - using our talents, our time and our money to serve God - we are blessed here and now, and can be certain that we will be rewarded in the life to come too.

Dudley Post Ofsted Inspection Parent Information Session - Friday 27th September 10am-1pm
On 20 May Dudley SEND services took part in a week long Area Inspection, conducted by a joint OFSTED and CQC team. DMBC issued the following statement in response to the post inspection report released on the 16th July.
"Dudley MBC knows that every child or young person deserves the very best, but they also recognise that they do not yet deliver this on a consistent basis in Dudley. The inspectors have found a number of areas of significant weakness. But they have also identified some areas of strong practice".
Join us at this event to: Hear feedback from the inspection and take part in the SEND panel question time with senior decision makers including Martin Samuels - DMBC Strategic Director of People, Neil Hoskinson DMBC Head of Educational Outcomes & SEND Lead, Santokh Dulai DMBC Head of Dudley Disability Service, Neil Bucktin Dudley CCG Director of Commissioning, DR Tim Horsburgh Dudley CCG DMO and Clinincal Lead for Childrens Services.
See some incredible young people living with long term conditions and disabilities tell their stories. Listen to the National Network of Parent Carer Forum describe their nationally agreed co-productio approach. Get excited about the launch of 'Care and Share' - a platform built by parent carers for parent carers.

Virtues Focus - Grateful and Generous
Children in St. Joseph's School are growing to be: grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Prayer of the Week - Wednesday Word
Dear Lord Jesus, help us to use our gifts well - to be your trustworthy sons and daughters who always put you first in our lives. Amen.
Pope's Intention for September
That politicians, scientists and economists work together to protect the world's seas and oceans.
