Covid 19 – how can we support children & young people?

Date: March 20, 2020

This is a really difficult time for adults but also for children and young people as they find ways to handle what is going on, including those who will not be able to sit their GCSE’s and A’Levels.
On behalf of all us at St Mary Magdalene, please let your children and young people know that we are thinking about them and praying for them.

We are receiving lots of vital Government advice about caring for children’s physical health.
But what about the spiritual and emotional well-being of children and young people?
Can I commend to you the following link:

It will take you to the Parenting for Faith website and a video by Rachel Turner including:
– emotions
– where is God in all this?
– finding purpose at this time
Rachel Turner has a unique, ‘zany’ style which may not suit everyone but she has some real nuggets of wisdom. Do have a look – even if you don’t have children!
