Thanks to all those children and young people who submitted entries for this yearís Bishopís Medal and Archdeacon Ruddell Competitions, and, of course to their teachers who worked hard to make it happen. Based on the Lordís Prayer, both competitions attracted a good number of entries, sixty children in total having taken part this year. The Clogher Diocesan Board of Religious Education are very grateful to the Revd Isobel Nixon who this year marked all the entries and who gave very helpful feedback.
