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.

280 Years of Dedicated Service
Recently Five Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Littlehampton celebrated a total of 280 years in service of the Lord. Sisters Attracta, Fabian and Regina celebrated their Diamond Jubilee of Religious Profession. Sisters Clara Eugene and Felicity celebrated their Golden Jubilee. The chapel was full to capacity with family, friends and fellow Sisters gathered together to join the Mass of Thanksgiving.
Bishop Kieran concelebrated Mass with 13 priests. The local Anglican, Fr Roger Caswell was also present. It was a very joyful, memorable and spiritual day for everyone.
Congratulations to the five Jubilarian Sisters and we wish them continued blessings from the Lord in the years ahead.
A fuller report will appear in a future edition of A&B News
