Year of the Word

The Year of the Word


The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin. Therefore, 2020 will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God’s word, through a range of events, activities and resources, available across the Diocese, to encounter anew the presence of that word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.

Blessing & Presentation of our bibles

We are very grateful to Father Michael for coming in to the school to bless the staff, children and the school. During the gathering, he presented the children with individual Bibles, kindly provided by ‘Bibles for Children’ at a subsidised cost to help celebrate The Year of the Word.
