THE GREAT JUBILEE - NEWS & EVENTS
Unusually, there were no significant Jubilee-related events in the past week so I didn't update the Jubilee page. The most recent reports are about the Jubilees of Migrants and Travellers, and of Journalists (June 1-4) .
For the rest of this month the Jubilee events are centred on the 47th International Eucharistic Congress (18-25 June) and the major feast days: Pentecost (being celebrated as I type); the Holy Trinity (next Sunday); the Body and blood of Christ (Corpus Christi - Thursday 22 June in Rome, Sunday 25 June in NZ); Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles (Thursday 29 June).
I will continue to update the Jubilee News page at least weekly as often as there are significant reports to link to.

'Recognition is well-deserved ' The top honour in the Queen's Birthday Honours List announced last weekend went to Cardinal Tom Williams. Only twenty living people can carry the Order of New Zealand at any one time, so this is a singular honour and one that the Cardinal richly deserves ... [Photo. Links to ...
