The God Who Speaks

A Year of the Word

2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the publication of Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation ‘Verbum Domini’ (The Word of God).  The document examined the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church.

To mark the anniversary the Catholic Bishops of England & Wales have designated 2020 as a Year of the Word entitled

 “The God Who Speaks”.
