Fr. Stephen Wang on Radio 4

It's always good to hear Fr. Stephen Wang, and today he was offering comments on Radio 4's 'You and Yours' programme. The general theme of today's programme was ' What part does organised religion play in your life?'

'You and Yours' can be listened to for the next seven days here is the link to today's broadcast.

Fr. Wang's first comment comes at about 9.40 minutes into the programme. In answer to  the question
'How do you see attendance at organised church services?', Fr. Wang, whilst ackowledging a downturn in church attendance over previous years, spoke of a turning point reached. He spoke of the often vibrant faith of Catholics who have immigrated to the UK, and the signs among young people, who are open to and searching for truth, where perhaps 20 years ago, they were much less so.

Amen to that- and let's hope to hear more from Fr. Wang on TV/Radio in the future.
