"A new command I give you: Love one another.
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

On September 30th 2019, Pope Francis decreed that the third Sunday of Ordinary Time henceforth will be celebrated as the Sunday of God’s Word.
2020 will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God's word, through a range of events, activities and resources, Pope Francis mentions the Second Vatican Council’s teaching on the inerrancy of Scripture:
Dei Verbum stresses that “we must acknowledge that the books of Scripture firmly, faithfully and without error, teach that truth which God, for the sake of our salvation, wished to see confided to the sacred Scriptures”
(Dei Verbum 11).
Since the Scriptures teach with a view to salvation through faith in Christ (cf. 2 Tim. 3:15), the truths contained therein are profitable for our salvation. The Bible is not a collection of history books or a chronicle, but is aimed entirely at the integral
[i.e., complete] salvation of the person.
The evident historical setting of the books of the Bible should not make us overlook their primary goal, which is our salvation. Everything is directed to this purpose and essential to the very nature of the Bible, which takes shape as a history of salvation
in which God speaks and acts in order to encounter all men and women and to save them from evil and death (n. 9).
He also cautions against neglecting the Old Testament and regarding it as something that does not apply to us:
The Old Testament is never old once it is part of the New, since all has been transformed thanks to the one Spirit
who inspired it (n. 12).
Please Prayer for the Birmingham Conference.
Father, in Heaven,
pour out Your Spirit upon the
Grant to everyone a new vision
of your glory,
A new experience of Your Power
A new faithfulness to Your Word
A new consecration to Your Service
so that Your Love may grow among
us and Your Kingdom come
through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
Our vision is to offer an opportunity to gather together in Praise and Worship,
to receive sound Christian teaching from local and international speakers and
to celebrate the Holy Mass each day.
Our mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in accordance with the doctrines and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
Celebration of the Eucharist
is one of the highlights of the Birmingham Conference
and is the source and summit of our faith.
And every day culminates with Holy Mass,
What is a virtual conference?
After considering the health risks due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, it was necessary for us to look at how we could continue to journey together in prayer and communion in a different way. Through prayer, the committee have discerned that we are being called to step out into the deep and take the leap of faith to hold our conference this year online. Though it may look and feel different, we look forward to meeting with you in prayer and continuing to support one another until we can meet once again as a conference family.
