Newsletter for Sunday 24 April 2016

22 Apr

FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

In this diocese, the 5th Sunday of Easter has been designated “Safeguarding Sunday”.   Today, we have been asked to promote the ministry of safeguarding, and to highlight our commitment to ensuring that all parish communities are safe places for the vulnerable.

Today we also respond to our parish commitment to “outreach”, as we heed and respond to Pope Francis’ humanitarian initiative for the people of Ukraine, in the form of a special collection to be taken in all Catholic churches in Europe on  Sunday 24th April 2016 – an initiative which has received Bishop Patrick’s endorsement.
