Summary of Bishop's Conference meeting in Leeds

 At their biannual meeting held in Leeds last week, The Catholic Bishops’ of England and Wales discussed and formulated a response to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Consultation on Assisted Suicide; reflected on the pilgrimage of the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux; warmly received the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus and established a Commission to consider in detail the next steps in this process in England and Wales; gave their full backing to the launch of ‘Friends of the Holy Land’, a new charity designed to foster closer parish links with the Holy Land and completed voting on the new English Translation of the Roman Missal.
