The Year of the Word
in the Catholic Church in England and Wales
“The God who Speaks”
The year 2020 sees the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini, the Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Benedict XVI on The Word of the Lord. The year 2020 is also the 1,600th anniversary of St Jerome’s death. These are strong reasons for us to embark at this time on a creative and deeper engagement with the Holy Scriptures across the life of each diocese.
To download the brochure, where you will find the three themes and vision for the year, together with information about our key events, resources and activities, please click here.
