FAREWELL TO PAUL AND MAGGIE CONNOR
After a combined 20 + years of service at Alton Castle, we bid a sad farewell to Paul and Maggie Connor. As a lot of you are aware Paul and Maggie have been very instrumental and influencial to life at Alton Castle and have been an inspiration to many. They both feel that the time has come to move on and go on their travels. Their last working day will be Friday 11 April 2014. We will be congregating at Alton Caste at 6.00 pm for final goodbyes and good wishes. If any past staff/team member would like to join us for this occasion so you can say your goodbyes you are very welcome. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by 5.00 pm on Tuesday 8 April 2014.
We are now recruiting for mission team volunteers to work in both the Alton Castle and Soli House Centres.

Established as a residential youth centre by the Archdiocese of Birmingham, Alton Castle opened in September 1996. It has had a highly successful first 15 years with over 8,000 children visiting the Castle each year, mostly on residential retreats but an increasing number now coming on day retreats.
Many things have changed and evolved over the years at the Castle, and many lives have been touched, either directly or indirectly, however, the one constant throughout this time has been the mission of the Castle: to promote the personal, spiritual and social development of all children and visitors, its employees and volunteers, through prayer and activity in such a way that they may live life to the full and become fully alive in God.
