Our Year of the Word 2019 /2020
The God who speaks.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.
At Pope Paul we have dedicated this year to be ‘Our Year of the Word’. Throughout the year we shall be seeking opportunities to celebrate, live and share God’s word with our children, our parish and our school community. We are all invited to listen afresh to the word of God, to encounter anew the presence of that word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.
There is also a website dedicated to ‘The God Who Speaks – A Year of the Word’ which can be found using this link – http://www.cbcew.org.uk/home/events/the-god-who-speaks/

Sacred Scripture, the Bible, the word of God, the Holy Book is at the heart of everything the Church says and does. It is permeates our prayer and worship, how we understand the world, how we are called to live and how we relate to each another
The Legacy of the Canonisation of Pope Paul VI our school patron Saint
The Canonisation of Pope Paul VI in September 2019 continues to inspire us to live out St Paul VI’s message of peace and justice in the modern world. We continue to build on this legacy and work with our children to take action to understand the role we play in continuing to work for justice for all.
