Texts of Bishops’ Pastoral Letters on Abortion Referendum released
The Catholic Communications Office today released the texts of 24 Pastoral Letters issued by bishops throughout the country for reading at parish Masses this weekend.
Every bishop whose diocese is wholly or partly within the Republic of Ireland issued a Pastoral Letter to his priests and people.
The Pastoral Letters are along similar lines, based on drafts generated within the offices of the Irish Bishops’ Conference in Maynooth.
The full texts of the letters are available on the website of the Catholic Communications Office
