On Friday 22 November 2019, Bishop Declan launched the Year of Communion at Clifton Cathedral. In a celebration of evening prayer he presented to each parish, community and school in the diocese the resources for the Year of Communion starting this Sunday, the First Sunday of Advent.
In his message, Bishop Declan said that although we should be Communion with one another, with the wider society and with the whole of creation.
As we begin our Year of Communion we will focus on a Spirituality of Communion and how we are called and saved, not as individuals but as God’s people. We will build upon existing ways in which parishes collaborate with each other and will encourage the work that has already begun.
