Diocesan Day - Hope Does Not Disappoint


We have the opportunity to join Bishop Bosco and our diocesan family at this year’s Diocesan Day “Hope Does Not Disappoint”. The title of the day comes from Spes Non Confundit, the Papal Bull of Indiction for the Ordinary Jubilee in 2025. Pope Francis has decreed that the theme will be Pilgrims of Hope, and so on Saturday 6 July at St Bernadette’s Secondary School in Whitchurch, Bristol, our diocese will gather to be formed for this joyful occasion.

Canon Chris Thomas, the General Secretary for the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales, will be our main speaker today

focusing on Hope. Phil McCarthy, a member of our own diocesan family, will also be speaking on pilgrimage. Phil runs the website https://www. pilgrimways.org.uk/ and seeks to revitalise the ancient tradition of walking pilgrimages in Britain. He has developed walking pilgrimages in most of the dioceses of England and Wales, including our own from Clifton Cathedral to Glastonbury.

The day will include an opportunity to plan for the Jubilee in our Pastoral Area groups. We warmly invite you to join us on the day. The day will start at 9.30am with refreshments and will include Mass as a central part of our day. Please bring a packed lunch. We will finish by 4pm. Everyone is welcome but places are limited, so please book early. To register for the day please click the Eventbrite link: https://cliftondiocesanday.eventbrite.co.uk
