Bishop of Leeds' Letter to the Clergy and Faithful of the Diocese

26th August 2018


Bishop of Leeds' Letter to the Clergy and Faithful of the Diocese

Bishop Marcus has responded in his capacity as Bishop of Leeds to the publication on 20th August 2018  of the Holy Father's Letter to the People of God on the need for '...combatting all forms of the abuse of power, sexual abuse and the abuse of conscience'.

 

The Bishop has asked for his Letter to the Clergy and Faithful of the Diocese of Leeds to be made available in printed form, along with the letter of Pope Francis, in all Churches and Chapels of the Diocese of Leeds from this weekend.  (In the case of clergy currently away on vacation, both letters will be made available in the parish the weekend following their return.)
