The following message was sent to the participants at the ACTA National Conference at Liverpool Hope University on Saturday October 25th 2014

"As a new arrival myself, I take great pleasure in welcoming you all to the Archdiocese of Liverpool, and to this ecumenical beacon of hope that is this chapel, and this university.
I pray that your continued commitment to the well-being of our church, in finding new pathways to dialogue and service, and promoting the joy of the gospel, will be a source of strength and encouragement, at this time of challenge and opportunity.
May you have a fruitful, creative and joyful day.”

God bless you all

Archbishop of Liverpool
