MESSAGE FROM BISHOP PHILIP

To the Clergy and People of the Diocese of Portsmouth about the Canonisation of Pope John XXIII
and Pope John Paul II

On behalf of the whole Diocese of Portsmouth, I would like to express delight and gratitude to God for the canonisation of Blessed John XXIII and Blessed John Paul II this coming weekend, Divine Mercy Sunday, 27th April, by Pope Francis. Here we have great popes of living memory. In them the Church is not only being given two powerful intercessors in heaven but also for us on earth two inspiring examples of Christian discipleship and priestly ministry.

THE FRAMEWORK FOR COLLABORATION

Bishop Philip Egan has named the pastoral administration of the Diocese of Portsmouth ‘The Framework for Collaboration’ (the ‘Framework’). The Framework mirrors the threefold ministry of the Bishop who acts in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ as the Priest, Prophet and King. Practically this has led to three Vicariates within the Framework: Vocation, Education and Evangelisation. These Vicariates represent three dynamically interrelated strands of Christian discipleship: call, formation and mission. The Framework brings dynamism and direction to all our diocesan activities. The call of Christ invites the disciple to formation in Christian doctrine, life and spirituality, and in turn sends him or her out on mission.
