Stewards of the Gospel 'Working together to evangelise our diocese'

New timeline - message from Ken Lowe (Steward of The Gospel, Saffron Walden).

Hi all, I have received this letter from Steven Webb, the Director of Development at the Diocese. It alters the time line for the Stewards of the Gospel process so that their response to the documents sent in by the parishes is now not due until the end of May. We have recevied a video message from the bishop. Steven's letter can be found here.

More information on Stewards of the Gospel page.

Like other churches in Saffron Walden, the Catholic church has a lively and numerous congregation, drawing its parishioners from a geographically large parish, stretching from Steeple Bumpstead to Chrishall, from Great Chesterford to Newport and forming part of the North Essex Deanery of the Diocese of Brentwood.
