Bishop Philip Egan orthodox catechism adoration year of faith angelus


Our new Catholic and Bishop Philip Egan, who has already stated that he wishes to embrace orthodoxy, has called for a “systematic” study of the Catechism, more Eucharistic Adoration in parishes, and schools to pray the Angelus at midday.

In a pastoral letter Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth said: “It would be good for all of us, priests and people, to attempt this year a systematic study of the Creed and Catechism, receiving and learning the doctrines expressed therein, and then explore their meaning and value for our lives.”

The bishop said that parishes could “help everyone deepen their faith by arranging periods of Eucharistic Adoration, and advertising times when the church is open for visits to the Blessed Sacrament”.

He added: “It would be good, too, for our schools to pray the Angelus at midday, recalling Mary’s response of faith and to encourage staff and students to say the ‘Apostles Creed’, as on the Year of Faith bookmarks.”
