Responding to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

This Sunday’s Feast has a strong family dimension to it – the family of Mary and Joseph – the holy family, and the family, covenantal, bonds which unite the faithful of Israel with each other and to God.

Family life – and marriage – are of vital and central importance in the life and teaching of the Catholic Church. They are the privileged place where love makes itself known.

The Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales has an Office for Marriage and Family Life to support and resource the bishops in their responsibilities.

The Office’s webpage offers help and encouragement more broadly too!
