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.

“…. AND IT’S GOODBYE FROM ME!”
CAFOD Diocesan Manager for Arundel & Brighton writes to tell us that after more than 30 years’ involvement with CAFOD, he has decided it is time to retire as the Manager for A&B. He says "I do this with some trepidation, as CAFOD has been such a major part of my life for so long."
Roger has spent 10 years employed with CAFOD in various capacities but he had long before that been active as a volunteer with CAFOD in Southwark Diocese as fundraiser, campaigner and parish contact. Roger has loved his time in Arundel & Brighton and says " It has been an enormous pleasure and privilege to have met and worked with all the CAFOD supporters in the Diocese and I owe you all a massive debt of gratitude for what you do."
