I hope that all of the members had an opportunity to celebrate the opening of the year dedicated to Consecrated Life.
In this newsletter you will find a link to order a copy of Pope Francis’ “Homiletic Directory”, presented by Archbishop Arthur Roche. It is important that the voice of religious be heard by those to whom we minister. A wonderful way of accomplishing this is to ask your local parish if you can speak at the Sunday masses on the joys and work of religious both here and abroad. We had a great turnout for the Formators meeting with 46 in attendance; it was a good opportunity to network and meet old friends. A working group has emerged and will meet in the next few months. The focus group for the continued implementation of the Strategic Plan also met and had a very fruitful meeting, and will report the progress at the AGM.
Forthcoming AGM dates:
Wednesday 13th – Friday 15th May 2015
Wednesday 18th – Friday 20th May 2016
All to be held at Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire.
The President and Executive would like to thank all those who attended the general meeting at Heythrop College. We hope you found it an informative and uplifting experience. We look forward to welcoming you next year.
The Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service (CSAS) has been established to be responsible for driving and supporting improvements in practice. Its primary role is one of co-ordination, advice and support in respect of the wider job of safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults.

“Pope Francis announced that 2015 will be a year dedicated to the promotion of consecrated life, and is asking the church's religious sisters, brothers and priests to "wake up the world" with their testimony of faith, holiness and hope.” — UK Religious Life
