Bishops’ Christmas Messages and Pastoral Letters on the Family

Bishops » » Bishops’ Christmas Messages a...

Celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour, a number of the Bishops of England and Wales release their Christmas messages and, in some cases, Pastoral Letters for the Feast of the Holy Family.

The latter falls this year on Sunday 31 December.

The Bishops’ pastoral letters, if issued, will be read out in the parishes of their respective dioceses on 30/31 December.

They are also usually uploaded to their diocesan websites. You can use the links at the foot of this article.
