Margaret Mizen MBE visited English Martyrs’ on 15th March to speak to Y5 and Y6 delivering an inspiring and heartfelt message of forgiveness, peace and hope.  Margaret spoke about the devastating loss of her beautiful, young son Jimmy, who was murdered in May 2008, on the day after his 16th birthday.  Since his murder, the Mizen family have been determined to keep his name alive and to make a safer world for young people.  Margaret stated that her Catholic faith has kept her going and that she coped with “God’s Good Grace”.  She spoke especially about the need for peace and reconciliation in our families and communities.

Upper key stage 2 children will be considering ways of promoting this message within the school and our local community.
