A Year of the Word

The God Who Speaks: 30th September 2019 –31st December 2020

The God who SpeaksPope Francis

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks – A Year of the Word’ to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St. Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.  In keeping with the Church’s three year cycle, there will also be a specific focus on St. Matthew’s Gospel. 

The Gospel according to Matthew

The aim of The God Who Speaks -The Year of the Word is:

Celebrating, Living and Sharing God’s Word.’

Through Collective Worship and RE lessons, the children will have the opportunity to explore and engage with the Bible in a more meaningful way so that they can develop new ways of responding to the Bible.


The whole school community will have time to reflect on their favourite and as yet undiscovered parts of scripture, so that we can all learn to listen to ‘The God who Speaks’.


Throughout the year, the children will share with you, the different ways in which they are celebrating and living God’s word.
