Twelve children from a Hove school are off to see the Pope, who arrived in Britain today.

The 12 disciples, from Cardinal Newman Catholic School in The Upper Drive, Hove, are due to set off at 6am tomorrow (Friday 17 September).

They are due to see the Pontiff at “The Big Assembly” at St Mary’s University College in Twickenham.

The open air event is due to last two hours and will involve about 3,000 young people from every diocese in Britain.

On Sunday the Pope is due to beatify Cardinal Newman, the 19th century religious leader after whom the school is named.

At the same time, one Catholic church in Hove is delivering leaflets to homes in the area to capitalise on the Pope’s visit.

St George’s Church in Court Farm Road is inviting people to an open evening.

The open evening is being held next Tuesday (21 September) from 7pm to 9pm.
