2020 is the ‘Year of the Word’ in the Catholic Church in England and Wales – to celebrate, share and live out faith through deeper Scriptural engagement. Dioceses have taken on different projects as part of this initiative.
Here in the Archdiocese of Liverpool, our Pastoral Associates have been working collaboratively with parishioners and the Formation Team to provide family friendly, fun and heartfelt reflections and activities all focused around the Word of God.
This Sunday morning worship comes from the Diocese of Leeds on BBC Radio 4 where Priests and Parishioners have been exploring the ‘Word Unlocked’. Fr Michael Hall will lead the service, “A Word for All Seasons”, to reflect on the way that “the God who speaks” meets us in all the changing circumstances of our lives, especially significant at a time when many Christians will have been turning to the Bible for comfort over the last few months. We’ll hear passages that have particular emphasis on the importance of the ‘Word’ of God.
Fr Michael Hall is Parish Priest in the West Yorkshire towns of Brighouse and Elland, and the homily will be given by Fr Henry Longbottom – the Diocese of Leeds’ newest priest who ministers in the East Leeds Parish of St John Henry Newman. Worship includes hymns and motets previously recorded in Leeds Cathedral by the Leeds Diocesan Choirs. The producer is Miriam Williamson.
Please do tune in if you have time. For more information, please follow this link here to listen online on Sunday at 8:10am. Together we will listen, pray and share The God Who Speaks.
