On a recent visit to the Diocese of Portsmouth for an ordination, I was very interested to see that the diocese is twinned with the Archdiocese of Bamenda in Cameroon.
For a number of years our own parish has supported a water project in connection with Our Lady of Bamenda Abbey, founded from Mount St Bernard.

Mass with the Pope - more details

It has been announced that the Mass at which Pope Benedict will beatify Cardinal Newman will be at Cofton Park, Rednal. Read more here.
This is a smaller location than Coventry Airport where many people thought this Mass would be, and it is likely that each parish will be allocated a fairly small number of places. As soon as I know more, I shall publish details.
