2019-2020: The God Who Speaks: A Year of the Word

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2019-2020 as 'The God Who Speaks - A Year of the Word’ to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini - Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St. Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.  In keeping with the Church’s three year cycle, there will also be a specific focus on St. Matthew’s Gospel.


The aim of The God Who Speaks - A Year of the Word is ‘Celebrating, Living and Sharing God‘s Word.’  It will be an opportunity in our schools to enrich current scripture practices and to develop and explore new ways of responding to the Bible.
