The Agency for Evangelisation and Catechesis team

Archbishop John is calling the Archdiocese of Southwark to be an ‘evangelising and missionary archdiocese.’ As part of an answer to this call the Agency for Evangelisation and Catechesis (AEC) is developing a missionary volunteer network consisting of prayer, people and parish plans – Some Definite Service. What might be your particular part to play in this, some definite service? For more information, visit: http://aec.rcaos.org.uk/sds.

The event, entitled ‘Building A Better Marriage’, will provide you with valuable insights into your communication skills and the call of the Church to the married. There is no group sharing. This is not marriage counselling but a chance to make average-to-good marriages a bit better – whether you married five years ago or 50. Booking is essential: telephone 07983 524 727 or email mflkent@rcaos.org.uk

 “This needs to stop!”

Cardinal Bo after church shelling in Myanmar said.

Cardinal Bo, Archbishop of Yangon, has written a letter, translated into English, appealing for an end to the violent conflict in Myanmar, something he describes as a “great humanitarian tragedy”. His Eminence wrote in the aftermath of a shocking attack on a Catholic church in Kayanthayar near Loikaw in Eastern Myanmar on 23 May that killed four and wounded many more. Pray for the people of Myanmar!
