Looking to the Future

The latest Diosecan Directory has just been printed. The Directory contains information not only about parishes and clergy in the diocese but also about schools and all the diocesan offices. It is available now at the price £3.80 plus post and packing from the Diocesan Bookshop and can be ordered by emailing bookshop@dabnet.org.

A Directory, however, cannot give a full picture of the diocese as it is mainly contains facts and figures but the Bishop in his introduction gives a glimpse of the wider picture. He speaks of the positive signs for the future in the diocese with the beginnings of the Diocesan Pastoral Council, the completion of a brand new Church in Woking and the young people who went to World Youth Day and Lourdes with him. He says of the new Church "it is a clear statement about our optimimsm for the future" and of the young people "a further cause for optimism."

Like Bishop Kieran in this season of hope and expectancy "I pray tht 2009 will bring you many blessings and enrich you with hope."

It is you, O Lord, who are my hope (Psalm 70)
