Participating in Holy Week | Episode 21

March’s At the Foot of the Cross podcast focuses on Holy Week and our journey to the Cross at this profound moment in our Catholic life. Canon Christopher Thomas, our General Secretary, joins us to bring us up to speed with the workings of the Secretariat of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

We talk about Canon Christopher’s appearance before a Home Affairs Select Committee panel that met to receive oral evidence on Asylum decision-making and conversion to Christianity.

Another big piece of news for us this month was the announcement of Bishop Declan Lang’s resignation and the appointment of a Bishop-elect in the form of Canon Bosco MacDonald, Dean of Clifton Cathedral. This gave us a fitting opportunity to pay tribute to the outstanding contribution of Bishop Declan to both the Bishops’ Conference and the life of the Catholic Church in the west of England, and also the space to offer a prayerful welcome to Canon Bosco.

Last, but by no means least, we look back on a splendid occasion in south Wales – an interfaith pilgrimage from the Anglican Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff, to the Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral of St David, which included the first time the Cross of Wales, containing shards of the True Cross, entered the Catholic cathedral. Archbishop Mark O’Toole gives us his thoughts on this special day.
