Welcome to our new diocesan magazine Fontes.
Many people will be unfamiliar with the title chosen for our new publication. The ‘fontis’ or ‘fontes’ refers to the ancient spring or water source found locally which was dedicated to Our Lady, our patroness. From this ancient well, the seat of our diocese takes its name Motherwell or Matrisfontis. Our hope is that this new magazine will likewise be a spring of grace and a source of renewal for our diocesan community, blessed by the intercession of Our Lady of Good Aid.
My thanks to the dedicated and talented group of lay people who make-up the Diocesan Communications team. These volunteers have worked many hours to prepare, edit and design this new magazine and to bring it to you in time for the start of Lent.
We hope to offer ten editions each year, packed full of news, articles and new ways to grow in our faith. With the support of local advertisers, we hope to be able to offer Fontes free of charge to all our parishes and schools. It will also be available online via the diocesan website and social media channels.
Please support this new publication with your prayers, asking Our Lady of Good Aid to crown our efforts with her grace. Remember that if you have any news you wish to share in these pages, we would love to hear from you. Simply email your stories and photos to email@example.com
Until then, enjoy reading this inaugural edition of Fontes!
