Papal Visit

I’ve just read Damien Thompsons excellent Blog article about the chaos behind the Papal visit. He’s not too happy about the lack of resources available but I did find this article that only yesterday the Pope was given a copy of the resource booklet to help Catholics prepare for the visit.

I've also been busy searching the Papal visit site for some other resources and found this page of resources dedicated to making our parishes welcoming and inclusive. I’ve included some of them below. If a dialogue box pops up, just press cancel or open.

Everybody’s Welcome? Helping your church to become more friendly for all kinds of families

There is also a series of leaflets to help parishes understand and meet the needs of families in specific situations. A welcome resource. They can be downloaded here or click a link for the ones I have included below.

What is Life Like if You or Someone in Your Family is Disabled or has Learning Difficulties?

What is life like if you or someone in your family is divorced or remarried

What is Life Like if You or Someone in Your Family is Gay or Lesbian in Their Sexual Orientation?
Perhaps they can be printed off and left at the back of your parish near the catholic newspapers ?
