The Catholic community is invited to join Bishop Declan Lang and Missio Diocesan Director, Fr Gary Brassington in celebrating the Beatification and Legacy of Blessed Pauline Jaricot, one of Missio’s founders.

You may have heard in recent months about the life of Pauline Jaricot how she, as a lay woman of formidable faith, formed small communities to support Missionaries overseas and worked with the poor every day. She was declared Blessed in May 2022 in Lyon and this gives us an opportunity to gather together and celebrate her life and legacy.

The main diocesan celebration will be Mass with Bishop Declan on Tuesday 12th July at 7:00pm in Sacred Heart Church, Grange Court Road, Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol BS9 4DR.

A further three Masses have been organised around the diocese in July. Each Mass will be followed by a time to share our enthusiasm and experiences of supporting the mission of the Church.

Tuesday 19th July 7.00pm –              Saint Joseph’s Church, Oldends Ln, Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. GL10 2DG.

Wednesday 20th July 7.00pm –       Saint Patrick’s Church, Park Lane, Corsham, Wiltshire. SN13 9LG.

Tuesday 26th July 7.00pm –              Saint George’s Church, Billet Street, Taunton, Somerset. TA1 3NG.
