Fifth Sunday of Easter Year A 22nd May 2011
A Conversation in Caritas
meetings this week and sheet available for feedback to diocese.

During his visit last year, Pope Benedict called for solidarity with the poor and needy of society. The Archbishop is aware that much Catholic social action happens in the diocese, usually done quietly and without fuss. However the Archbishop is keen to reinvigorate what we understand by “caritas” - the practical work of love. How can we respond to the Pope's message? How can we best support and encourage each other? One aspect is thinking about how each parish can enrich and enhance its response. But he also recognises that the Diocese could support, encourage and facilitate this work.

To this end he has started A Conversation in Caritas to find out in more detail what parishes already do and how they can be helped further, to serve those in need – not forgetting the most vulnerable and, in some ways those most under threat, the unborn – without whose protection attempts truly harmonious and healing social advance will always be profoundly flawed and hindered.

You can attend an open meeting, this week– see list; give your views online, or by post (pick up leaflet from Clergy House or one of the priests).
Parishioners are encouraged to participate.
