Christopher Devereux and Charles O’Dell are looking for sponsorship to raise funds for their trip to Lisbon in August next year. They will be travelling with more than 40 other young people from across the diocese to celebrate World Youth Day with Pope Francis and hundreds of other young people from around the world. To raise funds for the trip, they will be taking part in a group sponsored walk in January 2023, covering 14 miles along the Thames. Please, do help them if you can.


Returning to Mass at Pentecost

The Bishops of England and Wales have spoken recently about the return to mass of the faithful following the pandemic. They recognise that there will still be some members of our congregations who, for reasons of health, do not feel safe enough to return to Mass. However, they encourage and invite all other Catholics who have not yet done so to return to attending Mass in person. The full text of their resolution can be read here
