Following the visit of the Holy Father to
Great Britain last September, the Bishops' Conference of England
and Wales has published a programme for 2011 to focus on the
legacy of his time with us.
It is called 'Some Definite Purpose' and
reflects the content of his speeches, homilies and addresses.
Now is the time for us to respond so that the Papal Visit may
bear practical and long-lasting fruits in our communities and
families. We are asked during this year:
- to know our purpose
- to grow in confidence
- to witness to our faith
- to serve others
- to seek and engage in dialogue
- to point to the transcendent.
Under each heading we are invited to consider one way - small or
large - that we can contribute throughout this year to the
mission of the Church
in England and Wales.
The programme is available to download (8
pages A4 .pdf format)
