BISHOPS’ REFLECTION ON GENDER

The Bishops of England & Wales have issued a pastoral reflection on gender,
highlighting the teaching of the Church
but also stressing that accompanying
those struggling with gender dysphoria
is a “complex but essential task”.

The document, titled Intricately woven by the Lord: A pastoral reflection on gender by the bishops of England and Wales, emphasises that all are welcome in the Church, but says that the sexual identity of an individual is not a purely “cultural or social construction.”

The document can be downloaded from https://www.cbcew.org.uk/bishops-issue-pastoral-reflection-on-gender/

.



BAPTISMS Contact Fr. Sean.

MARRIAGES
The Diocese requests couples to give
Fr. Sean at least 6 months notice,
especially if they intend to be married
outside the Parish.
