Clergy In-Service Echoes Pope Benedict's Announcement of the 'Year of Faith

Some of the Diocesan Clergy at Frensham Ponds
The recent clergy in-service for the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, 'Faithful to the Council?', focussing on the Second Vatican Council nearly 50 years on with Fr John Farrell O.P., Fr Peter McGrail and Archbishop Kevin MacDonald, happily echoed Pope Benedicts announcement of the 'Year of Faith' in 2012 to mark 50 years since the Council opened.

The in-service also looked at proposals to reflect more deeply on the Council documents and how to live them out over the coming years as the diocese approaches 2015 and its Golden Jubilee of Foundation.

There was an enthusiastic response among the clergy present to the proposals as well as the in-service, and the opportunity it provided for reflection and deeper thinking about the key documents of the Council on liturgy, revelation, the Church and the Church in the world.

Watch out for more on both the diocesan and papal plans to celebrate Vatican II.
