The monthly E-bulletin was introduced in 2011 to replace the hard-copy Quarterly News Network. It was realised that the website and e-mail circulations provided a more effective way to provide information on a timely basis. This page gave access to the latest E-bulletin and all previous issues.
The September 2013 issue of the E-bulletin was the last to be issued under Anne O’Connor’s editorship as she is not part of the re-constituted Shrewsbury Commission. However, Anne continues her J&P work with the NJPN, the National Justice and Peace Network. In that capacity Anne was at the forefront of production of a monthly e bulletin for J&P in the North West, supporting J&P activities throughout the dioceses of Lancaster, Liverpool, Salford, Shrewsbury and Wrexham. Here we provide access to issues of the NJPN NW monthly bulletin as soon as they are produced.
The latest issue of the North West bulletin …
The April issue of the NW NJPN E Bulletin leads with CAFOD’s joyful response to the news that Oscar Romero is to be declared a Saint. Two young people from very different backgrounds are featured: a 16-year-old former migrant and Muslim girl, winner of the Columban’s young journalist competition, celebrating the love and acceptance shown by her local Catholic school community and a rousing speech, inspired by Dr Martin Luther King, from an 18-year-old African-American student from a poor area of Chicago at the March For Our Lives anti-gun rally in the US, a movement organised by teenagers following the Florida school mass shooting. Inspirational words too from Professor Stephen Hawkins, who died recently, nearly fifty years after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease, and the profound last words of Internet guru Steve Jobs plus reports of recent events, a book review of a chilling undercover operation to discover how the low-waged are treated in Britain, and a comprehensive diary of events across the NW for April to June.
We wish all our readers the joys and blessings of the Easter season. Anne O’Connor
