‘Counting Our Blessings’ is a new scripture-based resource, to support parish and school communities as they accompany families on their faith journey.  It has been produced by the Department for Christian Responsibility and Citizenship at the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.  Bishop Ralph has purchased a copy for each parish in Hallam.  To obtain a copy for your parish contact stym@hallam-diocese.com.

‘Seeking God Together’ is inspired by Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation: Amoris Laetitia and encourages a Christ-like walking together with families on a journey in faith.  It aims to help the parish reflect on and accompany the experience of marriage and family in light of the Church’s vision, recognising that families and family life in all its rich dimensions are of vital significance to all the people of God.

  The Companion builds on three decades of family and catechetical ministry in England and Wales, through projects to develop home-parish-school partnerships in living and sharing faith, building family-friendly parishes, and affirming home as a holy place.

  The publication launch was on 23 August at the World Meeting of Families 2018 in Dublin.
