A Church for the Poor – programmes on poverty
Following Pope Francis’ declaration of 17th November as the first annual ‘Day for the Poor’, we are planning to produce a series of radio programmes on Poverty and we’re looking for people who would like to tell their story on air.
Each programme will look at a different aspect of Poverty with interviews, music and poetry. The series will cover not just the absence of wealth, but the Hungry; Homeless; Lonely; Sick and Dying; Prisoners; Refugees; Lost and Parentless Children; Slavery; No religious freedom; Lack of education; Living in War zones; those trapped in Debt; and those in Sin.
Did you know we have a Pastoral Area Facebook group? If you use Facebook, you are invited to join – search for “Avon Stour Pastoral Area” and then click on “Join”. It serves as a forum for us to share information about Pastoral Area matters or of particular interest to Pastoral Area members. Currently we have 55 members and it is a Closed Group, which means the posts are not viewable by the general public. The more members we have, the more useful this group will become. Here is a link to the facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/985692274837818/
PRAY THE ROSARY ONLINE
There is a website called
which allows you to pray the rosary along with whoever is online at the time. You are told how many people you are praying with at any one time and there are visuals which you may choose in order to assist your prayer. The visuals of the Holy Land are particulary interesting.
