April edition of the NorthWest ebulletin available now!

The April 2020 edition of the NW NJPN E Bulletin looks at the many changes we are having to make to our daily lives and the way we worship due to the coronavirus pandemic. Poems and reflections help us to adapt to what Cardinal Vincent Nichols calls ‘a strange, strange Sunday’, the first of many for the foreseeable future. Let’s use this enforced solitude well to reflect on all that is good, to slow down our busy lives and take stock. Let’s celebrate the many acts of kindness from friends, family and strangers in our communities.
Central America also features this month as well as the results of the Columban’s ‘Throwaway Culture’ competition for young writers and film makers. There are book reviews and a song for St Patrick’s Day to lift our spirits.
Please read and pass on and do take good care in these difficult times.

The January 2020 issue of the NW NJPN E Bulletin focuses on the aftermath of the December 2019 General Election with an excellent in-depth analysis of “Our uprooted nation: from Brexit to a Christian vision of the Common Good” by Anna Rowlands – a long read but well worth it.  A last minute addition comes from Sojourners USA following the assassination of Iranian General Qasim Soleimani by the Trump administration – see page 12.  World Peace Day is also featured alongside two articles by a 16 year-old student from Macclesfield and tributes to eco-theologian Ed Echlin and HCPT founder Br Michael Strode who died recently.  Here in the UK we look at a new Care for the Elderly initiative from CSAN, the Catholic People’s Week programme for 2020, art and film reviews and a diary of local and national events – all making up a varied bulletin.
