Pointing the Way - The Most Beautiful Face of the Church

Pope Francis states that through Baptism we are all called to holiness and that this call is ‘The most beautiful face of the Church’. There is something about those who are holy which makes them more courageous, more perceptive, more compassionate and more generous. This is what we are called to be. We are all unique and every one of us, in some way, can reflect the image of God in our world. No talent, no matter how small is to be hidden or left unused. As we move forward together into partnerships we want to encourage everyone to look again at their call to holiness. There is a great need and great opportunity for lay men and women to come to the fore and help us all become more aware of our responsibility to witness to Jesus in our world.

Amy Cameron is in the process of developing a holistic plan that identifies and empowers lay people in their gifts. In this first stage, she is looking for volunteers with experience in leadership and education and/or facilitation to begin to help us shape this formation. If you feel you have something to offer, would you mind letting her know by email: amy.cameron@diocesehn.org.uk,
