Midwinter Meeting: Please find below, registration information for the Midwinter Meeting. As it happens, the Midwinter Meeting falls within Christian Unity Week and it is an opportunity for us to introduce our new national theme “Inspired by the Spirit; Women Respond to God’s Call”. During Christian Unity week, we are encouraged by the prayer that Jesus had for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (John 17:21). While this is a prayer we should hold in our hearts throughout the year, we are encouraged to make a special effort at this designated time of the year. We are honored to hear Anglican Bishop Jane Alexander's thoughts on both our theme and the growing need for ecumenical understanding and shared celebrations among Christian churches. More information about Bishop Jane Alexander can be found under the Meetings tab.

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have launched an excellent new website that explores some of the biggest questions and ideas around death, including what the Church teaches. The website - www.artofdyingwell.org - also includes a guide to the rituals available for Catholics as they prepare for death. Such rites, along with prayers for the dying, are explained using an animated fictional story about a family facing death and bereavement, narrated by English actress Vanessa Redgrave:
