World War 1 Commemoration
August 4th 2014 marked 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War. The acts of commemoration are expected to continue for the next four years marking various events as their centenary is reached. The Diocesan Education Team will support schools and parishes with resources and ideas to use in their community.
