March 2014

It's the fifth day of Advent and today's calendar window gives us four images from March 2014.

As Lent approached, our dioceses celebrated the Rite of Election - a significant step for those who want to be received into the Catholic Church. 

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor gave a lecture on Pope Francis, there was a National Mass celebrated for Altar Servers and our then-Ecumenical Officer was announced as a new auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
