Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter, Motu proprio “Aperuit illis”, published on 30 September 2019, the feast of St Jerome, establishes that “the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time is to be devoted to the celebration, study and dissemination of the Word of God”.
To celebrate this occasion, Bishop David will preside at a Service of the Word in the
Cathedral at 3pm on Sunday 23rd January. As a part of this Service Bishop David will
bless all readers who proclaim the Word of God in their parishes. Please encourage
readers to attend the service.
The service will be live streamed for those who cannot attend.
