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.

Fundraising Lourdes Doctor Reaches his Summit
Dr Salvo Xerri at 4,000 metres up Mount Kilimanjaro
For many years Dr Salvo was the lead Doctor for the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton Lourdes Pilgrimage. In retirement he decided to attempt for the Lourdes Sick Fund to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Kenya. He managed to get to 4,000 feet, but was beaten back by altitude sickness which affected his breathing. Nevertheless this was a noble effort and if you would like to show your appreciation of his effort and help sick pilgrimages get to Lourdes next year then go to his JustGiving site and donate now!
