Festival 50 Launch this March

Festival 50 gold edge square.jpg (Thumbnail)Parishes around the Diocese are gearing up to launch Festival 50 in the parish and local area over the coming weekends. With a message from Archbishop Peter Smith (see below) and a talk for use at Mass together with all the wealth of promotional materials this is a great opporunity to encourage people to both get involved, get the date in the diary and get themselves booked on one of the parish coaches.

All the information and materials for the launch are available on the Festival 50 webpages.

Message from Archbishop Peter Smith about Festival 50

Abp Peter SmithArchbishop Peter Smith, as Apostolic Administrator for the Diocese has sent parishes a message about Festival 50.

He says "‘Festival 50’ on 5th July this year will be an important event in the history of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. I hope and pray that many of the people of the Diocese will be inspired to participate in the day, especially those who are sick and infirm. I invite you all to join me at the Festival, in the morning from 10am and for the Jubilee Mass at 3pm.."
