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.

Golden Wedding Anniversary in Horsham
Robin and Margaret Sherfield celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with their family at the Vigil Mass at St John the Evangelist in Horsham earlier this year. Parish priest Fr Richard concelebrated the Mass with Fr Leo Mooney of Southwark Archdiocese. Deacon Tom Murray assisted. Fr Leo married Robin and Margaret 50 years ago.
Congratulations from Pope Benedict to Robin and Margaret
At the end of the Mass Fr Richard gave Robin and Margaret a wedding anniversary blessing and Fr Leo presented them with a Papal Blessing (pictured) - one of the last from Pope Benedict XVI before his resignation became effective 5 days later.
