BISHOP’S MESSAGE ABOUT BAMENDA
"I returned a week ago from a seven-day visit to the Archdiocese of Bamenda in Cameroon. I wish immediately to express my gratitude to Archbishop Cornelius, Auxiliary Bishop Agapitus and the priests, religious and people of the Archdiocese of Bamenda for their generous hospitality and also to Colm Lennon, Sylvia Foster, Jo Overton, Fr James McAuley and other members of our Bamenda Committee for their superb organisation of the visit".
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.
