As the Church continues on pilgrimage, growing, dying and rising, it meets the challenges of mission in every level. Just as with the early church so too for us today. I will be visiting the United States on Sunday, following in the footsteps of the Holy Father, attending a Summit of the Church where priest and people will be in dialogue addressing such issues as the Catholic population, fewer priests and new models of ministry. Sounds familiar! I hope and pray that the task I have been given in representing the priests of our country across 'the pond' will bear fruit with ideas, concerns, joys and vision for an ever changing church.

Tongue in cheek
I am unable to resist sharing this, seen in a parish newsletter this weekend.
