The NW NJPN E BULLETIN MARCH 2024 has a range of topical issues plus resources for Lent and a packed diary of events throughout the region and nationwide. The recent NJPN Zoom meeting on climate change leads this month’s bulletin with two articles from those present. You can read another report from Marian Thompson who edits MouthPeace for the NW (link on page 14). There’s a short drama on the story of the Good Samaritan which can be used for school or youth groups – feel free to adapt if you wish (thanks to Sister Philomena Grimley SHCJ from Blackpool for providing this).  I was especially moved by the story of the Birds of Gaza (page 3) from Dr Philip Crispin which I first read on Independent Catholic News and also the heartfelt BAFTA Fellowship acceptance speech from actor Samantha Morton (page 10) as she speaks from her personal experience of growing up in care.

Please read and pass on.

Best wishes
