Pastoral Letter

In his pastoral letter on the Year of Faith Bishop Declan Lang says:

"The Year of Faith is a time for us to explore the teachings of the Church in a way which will help us respond better to peoples questions. This will make us more confident in sharing faith with one another, with our families and the wider community. It will enable the mission of the Church to go out and teach the way of the Lord.

This Year of Faith is a time to renew our discipleship and live more confidently as Catholics. It is a time to grow in relationship and dialogue with other Christians and all people who seek God with a sincere heart. It is not a time to be defensive but an opportunity to share our faith with people of other faiths and no faith. It is a time to be open to the workings of the Holy Spirit. May God bless this year."
