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.

In Vino Veritas - Supporting Palestinian Communities
A wonderful idea for supporting poor Palestinian communities came across this desk:
While on a recent pilgrimage in Bethlehem some A&B clergy came across ‘Cremisan Altar Wines’ which are certified by the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem for the celebration of the Eucharist. Produced by the Salesians of Don Bosco in their winery in the hills of Bethlehem since 1885 the sale of these wines directly supports the education of poor children in the Holy Land.
The wines are being imported here by 5th Gospel Retreats, a not for profit company, run by Della Shenton: a parishioner in the Plymouth Diocese. If you would like more details please see their website: http://www.5gr.org/
