Pastoral Letter

Bishop Michael Campbell says in his pastoral letter for the 'Year of Faith':

"To be a faithful and practising Catholic in today’s world is not easy, and we face many challenges. Alternative and superficially alluring paths stretch out before us where we appear to have no need for God, Church or Sacraments. Such paths lead us to the illusion that as human beings we are self-sufficient and can answer the great questions of life with the wisdom of this world. We know that this is false, and the wonder and comfort of our Catholic Faith is that in Jesus Christ we do possess true wisdom and the truth that only God can provide. During this Year of Faith each one of us Catholics is called by the Pope to make ever more our own that wisdom and truth given by God to us in Christ in the Church."
