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.

Mayfield Parish Celebrates the Harvest
Sanctuary decorated for Mass
Lucy Nolan from Mayfield Parish reports on their recent Harvest Festival:
For our Harvest Festival celebration this year at St Thomas of Canterbury, Mayfield, Fr Mario requested that gifts were donated by the parishioners and put up on the altar at the beginning of mass for all to see and enjoy.
There were a wonderful variety of freshly picked fruits from the garden, locally grown vegetables, homemade cakes and preserves and a selection of biscuits, tins and other useful produce. After a wonderful liturgy and some aptly chosen Harvest hymns, the altar servers, children and others helped carry all the donations to tables outside the church and they were all sold in aid of CAFOD.
