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.

New Memorial Window at St Mary’s, Preston Park, Brighton
"By Baptism we are welcomed into God’s family. It is therefore fitting that Leticia Aurora Bermejo Alfred who for over 30 years until her death in 2007 did so much for the parish, should be commemorated by a new stained glass window in the baptistry of our church. Lety was involved in running the youth club as well as Brownies and Guides. She was also a parish councillor, member of the SVP and of The Red Cross. She had a great organising ability and gift for cookery and flower arranging so contributed to countless aspects of parish life.
The window is a gift from Lety’s husband David and their three daughters, all of who have close links to the church as well as to our local schools: St Bernadette’s and Cardinal Newman. It was designed and made by Caroline Benyon FMGP ACR and installed by David Bowman. Lety, a lover of music, art and nature, would have appreciated its beautiful colours and rich symbolism. Like the Blessed Sacrament Window it is rapidly becoming a much loved feature of our beautiful church."
