Ushaw must be saved, its closure will be another sign of our Cathloic identity being lost.
Ushaw must stay open!
The most important part of the petition is missing: money. An offer of money is needed. Or, to entrust the whole place to a Catholic institution that can provide the money, such as the Knights of Columbus in the USA. Or alternatively, the offer to start a fund-raising campaign.
Students based near the cathedral have to park their cars a considerable distance from colleges. They might prefer accommodation at Ushaw College where they can park nearby.A mini-bus would take students from Ushaw to university departments.The empty accommodation might also be suitable for armed services personnel suffering from stress.Maurice SaltonSt. John's College, Durham1970-73
I was at Ushaw for nearly six years. I received a great education and had a lot of friends. It seems to me to be wrong to be closing such a beantiful set of buildings and the history contained within. Good luck with the campaign, my prayers are with you.
