On Friday, 6th October 2017, churchgoers from Corpus Christi parish, Weston super Mare raised £885.45 for CAFOD’s annual Harvest appeal. The parish added more from its tithe fund so the Parish in the end sent a cheque for £1219.14 to CAFOD.
Bishop Declan launched the new diocesan vision‘A Future Full of Hope‘ on Saturday 28 October, at St Brendan’s College, Brislington, Bristol. Over three hundred people came together from all over the diocese to explore the new diocesan strategy. This document, inspired by Pope Francis, emphasises a ‘more outward focus’ and sets out a roadmap for the next three years.
The parishes of Salisbury have recently been discussing and reflecting on their identity as the Catholic community in this part of the Diocese. Having listened to and recognised the call of Pope Francis to become an outward-looking church it was decided that the call to mission needed to be addressed and embraced.
