Christmas is a time for giving? Here is a small act that will make a big difference.

We can easily take Christmas cards for granted but there are other people in other parts of the world who would love to know that someone cares enough to remember them at this time of year.

If you would like to bring hope to the hearts of those who feel abandoned or forgotten by sending a card, then explore the following links and get writing!

If you are interested in sending Christmas cards to the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, and wish to know the correct procedure as well as parish addresses in Jerusalem, the Palestinian Authority and Israel, this is your link:  You can find a list of parishes in The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem by clicking here.

Moreover, there is the possibility of writing directly to Catholic schools in both Israel and Palestine which also come under the aegis of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem: You can find a list of schools in The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem by clicking here.

However, before you rush off to the post office, and to avoid possible disappointment, please read our special list of You can find the suggestions for sending Christmas cards to parishes in The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem by clicking here.

It would also be a nice extra detail for your intended recipient if you were able to convey your Christmas and New Year greetings in Arabic, you can find the translation by clicking here.

Another option is to support the latest initiative by ACAT (Action by Christians Against Torture) to reach out to individuals, and notably Christians, whose rights have been infringed as well as the organisations that stand firm in upholding their causes: The Action by Christians Against Torture List for Christmas 2018 can be found by clicking here.

October issue of the North West eBulletin available now.

The October issue of the North West NJPN eBulletin is available to read by clicking here.

You can also find the issue, as well as past issues, on our North West eBulletin page, by clicking here.

The NW NJPN E Bulletin for October 2018 leads with extracts from a series of report by journalists Ellen Teague of the Columbans and Josephine Siedlecka, editor of Independent Catholic News following their recent participation on the biennial seminar for Catholic journalists ‘The Church Up Close’. 270 delegates from the six faith groups of Churches Together in England met to strengthen their commitment to working together with Jesus at the centre of their common mission. Campaign updates from Aid to the Church in Need, CAFOD, Christian Aid and Church Action on Poverty are included as well as a briefing from the Catholic Association for Racial Justice entitled ‘Defining Anti-Semitism’. There are opinion pieces from Robert A.H.Cohen and Jim Wallis (Sojourners) and environmental policies are highlighted plus changes in J&P personnel and the sad news that Traidcraft can no longer break even and is likely to cease trading at the end of the year. All this and a packed diary! Enjoy and pass on to others!
NB: Late addition – a report of the controversial sentencing of four activists for a peaceful protest against fracking in Lancashire with a link to a powerful video outlining their actions.
