Editorial

In this New Year issue for 2018 we tackle a topic that is in the front line when the fashionable culture of today’s West meets the timeless truths of the Christian Faith: the new gender ideology, recently strongly denounced by Pope Francis.  We take this opportunity to thank the Holy Father for his clear message on this, and we would like more to be done.  May we hope our Bishops might take up the issue and give some special clear moral guidance for Catholics in Britain?

Faith Summer Break - How I spent my summer

In the summer of 2015, my Dad asked me if I wanted to go on the Faith Summer Break.  At first I felt obliged to go, like he wanted me to and I had to because he had investigated it.  Then I felt a bit daunted, new people… I had just started at my new secondary school, which was hard enough. New people; how would I fit in?
