A Message from Archbishop John Wilson

Dear friends,

The person and Good News of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is both the greatest gift we can receive and the greatest gift we have to offer. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Archdiocese of Southwark and invite you to join with us, in changing times, as we develop our website. We seek to be an inspiring online presence. We aspire to communicate the truth of the Lord Jesus and His Church, shown beautifully in the goodness of the people, parishes and schools in our Archdiocese. We are a people of hope, committed to the proclamation of the Gospel in word and service.

With every blessing and the assurance of prayers.

Yours sincerely in Christ,

The Most Reverend John Wilson Archbishop of Southwark and Metropolitan
