It is some months now since I heard about the demise of "Family Publications" of Oxford, however, I wonder if a campaign, or something similar, has been initiated to continue the mission of, arguably, the best Catholic Publisher in the UK. What a marvellous work "Family Publications" did; surely there is the possibility within the UK of taking up this work.

Tomorrow, the second Sydney Congress of the New Evangelisation begins. This week-long event, centred on St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney, is giving expression to the new direction being taken in the Church in response to the huge change in culture which has taken place in the world in the last 50 years. Full details on www.scene.org.au . If you are in town, get involved; give it whole-hearted spiritual support.

What a marvellous opportunity for Grace is being offered by the Church in England this weekend - Invocation 2010 - a vocations discernment event at Oscott College in Birmingham. I still remember the powerful Vocations Exhibition which was held at The Queen's Hall in Leeds in 1966 (just before everything went haywire). I gather that over 300 young people from all over the country are coming to Birmingham today for this event. Support it with loads of prayer!
