As part of the Westminster Synodal Pathway we are invited to join Bishop Nicholas Hudson at a Listening Event on Wednesday 8thDecember, 7.00pm – 9.00pm, at Westminster Cathedral Hall, Ambrosden Avenue, London SW1P 1QJ. Pope Francis has invited the worldwide Church to a time of listening – of listening deeply to each other as we walk side by side, sharing our stories of faith. Here in our local Church, our Diocese, this is just what we are doing. This Listening Event is an opportunity to listen, to share, and to dream about the Church we are called to be. All are welcome, and places can be booked by emailing catadmin@rcdow.org.uk.

Alongside two previous statements on the importance of Sunday as our Holy Day – Sunday, It is Our Day, and The Day of the Lord – the Bishops of England and Wales have issued a statement about the importance of Honouring Sunday. Read more.

Dies Domini

The Bishops have asked that all Catholics reflect on the centrality of the Eucharist to our life of faith and take into consideration their personal circumstances and the reasons as to whether they can now attend the Sunday Eucharistic Celebration. To encourage this process of reflection and to promote the vital, indispensable and irreplaceable place of the Eucharist in our lives, we have produced a series of conversations for Advent called ‘Dies Domini – Keeping the Lord’s Day Holy‘. Our inspiration comes from Pope Saint John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter of the same name from 1998. Read more or click HERE
