The Second Vatican Council in Rome in its decree on communications (Inter Mirifica) said that "the Church believes that its task involves employing the means of social communication to announce the good news of salvation.” This blog is part of that process by the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton to communicate that same good news about Jesus Christ.

A Cardinal, an Archbishop and a Deacon
Deacon Roy Waters from this Diocese writes: "Following the Holy See’s acceptance of Deacon Jack Sullivan’s cure as a miracle, and so aiding Cardinal Newman’s progress on the road to eventual canonisation, Deacon Jack was invited by Archbishop Vincent Nicholls to London. After a press conference, widely covered in the national press, he was invited to preach at the Sung Mass in Westminster Cathedral on Monday 9th November. During several conversations with Jack he impressed me as a very humble and warm hearted person."
Deacon Roy also ministered on the sanctuary alongside two Westminister Deacons.
Deacon Jack is second from the left and Deacon Roy is on the far right.
