Our 2018 Creation Time resource is now available!
Please share with anyone you think will be interested in viewing it.
The September issue of the NW NJPN E Bulletin is available earlier than usual to ensure information on two key events at the start of the month reaches readers in good time – resources to help celebrate Creation Time (1 Sept – 4 Oct) and details of the comprehensive parallel programme to Adoremus, the Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress of the Bishops of England and Wales to be held in Liverpool 7-9 Sept.
Other topics featured are Israel’s new Nation-State Law, condemned by world renowned Jewish musician Daniel Barenboim as “a clear form of apartheid;” the text of the Hiroshima Peace Declaration on the 73rd anniversary of the atomic bomb; an address by Dr Ray Towey at the Blessed Franz Jaegerstaetter ecumenical service; the Catholic Church’s new teaching on the death penalty; Pope Francis’ message to a conference on theological ethics; a homily to commemorate the 101st anniversary of the birth of Oscar Romero, soon to be canonised; the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport; ethical farmed animal welfare; a letter from a young carer; an extract from a 2017 interview with Kofi Annan who died recently plus a packed diary of events across the NW region.
