Day of Prayer and Penance this Sunday

The President and Vice-President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have written to Cardinal Sfeir of Lebanon to assure him that the Catholic community in England and Wales will respond with generosity to the appeal of the Holy Father to keep this Sunday, 23rd July 2006, as a special day of prayer and penance.

The letter can be seen here.

"With confidence, we write to assure you that the Catholic community in England and Wales will respond with generosity to the appeal of the Holy Father to keep this Sunday, 23rd July 2006, as a special day of prayer and penance."
