About us

Who is this website for?

What Good News is a site for Catholics who wish to learn more about their faith and to be able to share it more effectively with those who they meet in their daily lives. As the site grows, we hope the resources and links provided here will also be useful to those involved in evangelisation, catechesis and sacramental preparation in their parishes, and of interest to those who are beginning to explore the Catholic faith or have questions about it.

Who is responsible for this website?

The website was originally an initiative of the Commission for Evangelisation, once part of the Diocese of Brentwood, and it has been decided to continue this site independently as a kind of ‘shop window’ to make the original and new resources available to the wider church, and to publicise events more widely.

The web site is in the process of being updated, so watch this space!

Why is the website called ‘What Good News’?

The title ‘What Good News’ is deliberately ambiguous. It can be a question ‘what good news?’ in the mind of one seeking to find out (more) about the Catholic faith, which is the good news or gospel of Jesus Christ; and it can be an exclamation ‘What good news!’ in the heart of one who hears this gospel for the first time. We hope that the site will help people answer the question ‘what good news?’ – whether it is a question they are asking themselves or questions others are asking them – and so lead them to exclaim ‘what good news!’
