About Catholic Voices
source – www.catholicvoices.org.uk
Catholic Voices is a bureau of Catholic speakers able to articulate with conviction the Church’s positions on major contentious issues in the media. Since its launch in February 2010, the project has been reported in various newspapers and magazines.
Through regular expert briefings and media skills workshops from March to July 2010, a team of Catholics drawn from a broad spectrum of the Church have prepared for Pope Benedict XVI’s visit in September, to make themselves available to the media before and during that time.
Catholic Voice has the blessing of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, but does not speak officially for the Church. Media enquiries seeking official statements should be directed to the Catholic Communications Network.

‘I want a laity, not arrogant, not rash in speech, not disputatious, but men [and women] who know their religion, who enter into it, who know just where they stand, who know what they hold and what they do not, who know their creed so well that they can give an account of it, who know so much of history that they can defend it. I want an intelligent, well-instructed laity – I wish…to enlarge [their] knowledge, to cultivate [their] reason, to get an insight into the relation of truth to truth, to learn to view things as they are, to understand how faith and reason stand to each other, what are the bases and principles of Catholicism…’
