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.

News from Shoreham and Steyning
Adur Valley Youth Group on Isle of Wight
Recently nineteen young people from the parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace, AdurValley, which covers the areas of Shoreham and Steyning, visited the Abbey of St Cecilia’s on the Isle of Wight for the day.
They were given a presentation on the foundation of the order and life at the Abbey and then were able to question the sisters on their life and why they joined the Order of St. Benedict.Fr. Anthony Glaysher from Ryde kindly said Mass and they were then treated to refreshments – they also found some time to enjoy the good weather on the beach!They were joined by Sisters from the Convent of the Blessed Sacrament in the parish and Confirmation Catechists.
