    Listening to this report here in Suffolk was very encouraging. Particularly so as whilst my parish worked really hard at identifying what needed to be done to re-energise a dying church, the reaction of the East Anglian diocese has been to ignore the need for major change. It just talks of catechetic needs rather than proper reform, leadership and the need to listen to its remaining and prospective members.
    Athlone you are lucky: treasure your bishop.
