Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
We come to the beginning of a New Year in the life of the Church. We need to acknowledge the continuing changes and challenges within our nation and internationally. So many people face conflict and the impact of climate change and, even in our own communities, there is increasing poverty and stress. This new year invites us to consider how we may best express the Gospel values and meet the demands of those most important commandments of the Law, as declared by Jesus Himself.
This is the bread come down from heaven (John 6:58)
A beautiful hallmark of the Catholic faith is the profound desire to participate in the Holy Mass and share in the Eucharist. We do so with deep gratitude and joy. The Eucharist gives the Church her identity – “The Eucharist makes the Church, and the Church makes the Eucharist.” It enables us to worship Almighty God, to support each other on our journey of
faith, and to be a visible sign of faith in the world. This hallmark is supported and strengthened by the precept that our fundamental Christian duty is to worship God by participating in the celebration of Mass. Attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is the greatest of all privileges, sometimes referred to as “the Sunday Obligation.”
Caritas Diocese of Salford strongly condemns the large-scale military intervention in Ukraine and brutal aggression towards its people. We deplore the consistent attacks on civilian lives and civilian infrastructure witnessed over the past days. Such acts of aggression endanger international stability and peace and bring international law into disrepute.
We continue to follow the crisis and humanitarian situation in Ukraine and the surrounding countries receiving refugees and those displaced. At Caritas Salford, we are receiving regular updates from Caritas Internationalis and in particular from Caritas Ukraine, Poland, Moldova and Bulgaria and are being asked advice from parishes and schools in our own diocese on how to donate to support those in crisis.
