GOD WHO SPEAKS' The Year Of The Word


GOD WHO SPEAKS' The Year Of The Word October 2019/2020

'The God Who Speaks'

The Year of the Word 

celebrating, living and sharing God's word


The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated December 2019/2020 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, this will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God's word, through a range of events and activities.  We are invited to listen afresh to the Word of God as did Our Blessed Lady at the Annunciation, to encounter anew the presence of God’s Word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.
