Excerpt from a previous weeks bulletin.

POPE FRANCIS GIVES SUPPORT TO DAY FOR LIFE 2019: THE SCOURGE OF DOMESTIC ABUSE: The Catholic bishops of England and Wales, Ireland and Scotland have agreed that the theme for Day for Life 2019 will tackle the shocking reality of domestic abuse. One in four women and about one in six men suffer from domestic abuse in their lifetime. Two women are killed every week in England by a partner or ex-partner.

Bishop John Sherrington, the bishop responsible for Day for Life in England and Wales, said:

‘These shocking statistics call us to fight against the scourge of domestic abuse. For those who are experiencing domestic abuse, the home is far from being a place of security and self-fulfilment. Too often it is a place of suffering, fear, degradation and isolation. Domestic abuse is often a hidden problem, and our aim is for anyone experiencing domestic abuse to feel able to have confidence to seek help within the Church setting. We want to raise awareness in our churches which would be a step towards addressing this serious moral and social problem.’


LAME 2019 - '#SIGNIFICANCE': Zuzana Mesarova writes on her and her friends experience on the Parish Life Page.


FILIPINO CULTURAL EVENING A very happy and great financial success. Thank you.

Rose Stephenson writes: 'On behalf of the Filipino community I'm very pleased to say we raised £2,488.00 on the night. We are all very grateful for all the love and support that our friends, families, work colleagues, parishioners and to those who were unable to attend but bought entrance tickets and raffle tickets, have shown to us.. Thank you so much.'


SHALOM WORLD TV: Bishops face the nearly impossible task of governing their dioceses while remaining a pastoral presence to their people. That’s why SHALOM WORLD is compiling exclusive ‘heart-to-heart’ interviews through which you’ll learn about the childhood, vocational discernment, spirituality, and challenges faced by our Shepherds.

Bishop Declan Lang is the champion of evangelisation and human rights over the world. Be confident and be in Christian faith, is his message. He had a personal relationship with God in the childhood itself. This has helped him to follow the urge to become a priest. For him Christian identity relays on the prayers and sacrifice.
