Message from the Editor

I am delighted to have taken up the editorship of The Pastoral Review (formerly Priests & People) with effect from its new, bi-monthly format starting with the January/February 2005 issue.

With the ever-evolving needs of the Church, The Pastoral Review aims to reach all those actively involved in all aspects of pastoral responsibilities within the Church. By listening to what the spirit is saying to the Church through the reflecting on the scriptures (Rev.2:7), considering new pastoral initiatives and engaging in issues that impact on pastoral ministry, The Pastoral Review seeks to be a resource for the Church today.

The Pastoral Review will have a strong focus on liturgical seasons, reflections on daily reading and catechetical material, bringing timely, authoritative articles to its readers. And drawing from the academic experience and expertise of an editorial board of leading theologians, each bi-monthly issue of the journal will bring the reader a strong mix of articles which can be applied into pastoral situations.
