What is the "Year of the Word"?
2020 is the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’ and the 1,600 anniversary of St Jerome’s death. These dates have inspired the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales to dedicate 2020 as a year of focus on the Bible and ‘The God Who Speaks’.
SS Peter and Paul has been decorated with 7 Christmas trees, each representing a different time in the liturgical year. Next to each tree is a quote from scripture that corresponds to its seasonal theme. You can view these posters by clicking on the buttons underneath each of the images.
