Welcome to your colour CDN! March 2014


undefinedReaching parishes this week will be the April's Chester Diocesan News. It's the first issue to have full colour pages as a permanent feature. In it you can read a poignant farewell to our diocese from Bishop Robert, who in summer will become the new Bishop of Exeter. His article also contains a profound spiritual reflection.

On other pages you will find a report on the ‘Time to Talk’ project, which aims to get people talking and to raise awareness of mental health problems.

And we tell of a brilliant new building project in our linked diocese of Aru in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

There is good news from Frodsham where St Laurence’s church has won funding for repairs and an ambitious heritage project.

And there is a colour picture of local young people gathered in Chester for a service of remembrance to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.

CDN’s move to colour production has given an added incentive to parishes to send in photos and reports of their activities.
