NW NJPN E Bulletin April 2022

The April NW NJPN E Bulletin leads with a challenging opinion piece from Forces Watch. There are also articles on such diverse topics as the annual Holy Fire procession which talks place in Jerusalem the Saturday before Easter; the latest Campaign Against the Arms Trade news;  a modern love story – Richard Ratcliffe’s tireless campaign to free his beloved wife Nazanin from a Tehran prison and an account of faith-based organisations working together to protect biodiversity. Ellen Teague reports on how a delegation from Latin America, including a Catholic bishop, has travelled to Europe to raise awareness and urge support for communities suffering from destructive mining and we showcase the story behind the Red Dress Project, a 13-year, award winning global, collaborative embroidery project, made by over 250 women, many of whom are marginalized and live in poverty, or refugees, or living in war zones. Michael Rosen’s latest book, Many Different Kinds of Love: A Story of Life, Death, and the NHS, gives a frank account of his near-death experience of Covid. All this, plus Lent resources, Stations of the Cross, including a moving liturgy in a women’s prison in Surrey, and an Easter reflection by John O’Donohue and diary dates for the next couple of months.
