The NW NJPN E BULLETIN FOR APRIL 2023 showcases Peggy Healy’s excellent lecture: ‘Responding to the Cry of the Poor Today’ for Romero Week – a long read but well worthwhile.  As we approach Easter there are reflections and a poem, plus an in-depth look at the ethical concerns around the chocolate industry.  There is an interesting extract from a talk by the late peace activist Jim Forest, an update from Life on the Breadline and CAFOD news as well as diary dates. This month’s issues is somewhat lighter on current articles because I lost all Hotmail access for a couple of weeks, only getting back into action yesterday, so apologies to anyone who has sent diary dates or articles recently.  The enforced quiet provided an opportunity to go through old emails, carefully deleting what was no longer necessary, and a host of interesting items came to light. 


Wishing all our readers the joys and blessings of the Easter season.
