SEA SUNDAY 2016 will be celebrated on Sunday 10th July 2016. The Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) is a registered charity and agency of the Catholic Bishops’ Conferences of England & Wales and Scotland. More than 90% of the goods sold on our high street arrive by ships and more than 100,000 ships visit British ports each year. However the life of a modern seafarer can be dangerous and lonely, with harsh working conditions. AoS provides pastoral and practical assistance to all seafarers. We are wholly reliant on voluntary donations and legacies to continue our work. Visit our website to learn more about SEA SUNDAY and see how you can help a seafarer.

Founded in 1929, the Society of St Gregory is the national society for liturgy and music in the Catholic Church in the British Isles.
It seeks, particularly in parishes and schools, to promote:
- good practice in the celebration of the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church
- the study and understanding of the liturgy of the Church
- the use of music in the Liturgy
- good formation of ministers of the Liturgy.
The Society publishes a range of resources to support this work – including Music and Liturgy, published 3 times a year, and a range of web-based resources.
Mission Together encourages children worldwide
to care about mission through prayer, learning activities,
and fundraising. Its unique motto is 'children helping
children’. Visit the website for free primary
school and parish resources.
The Catholic Bible School seeks to be a centre
where people experience peace and hospitality, a centre
whose ministry and outreach provides a range of opportunities
for people to encounter and develop a love for the Scriptures
as the “Living Word of God”.
This is an excellent new venture produced jointly by
the Archdiocesan Vicariate for Evangelisation and St
Cuthbert’s Catholic Community College in St Helens,
Liverpool. For each Sunday of Advent and Lent there
is a reflective and prayerful version of the Gospel
which can be used at home, school or church. It also
enables you to download the Gospel onto an iphone, mp3
or mp4 player so that it can be carried round and looked
at during the week.
