In the Vine you will find all kinds of Diocesan news from our parishes, schools, charities and groups, as well as a round-up of Catholic news.
Articles, news and photos for the Vine need to be submitted as above,, if they are time-sensitive, they will need to be received by the first Sunday of the month preceding the publication month. In other words, if you want something in the September issue, it has to be received by the first Sunday in August. There are exceptions to this, so always check if timing is crucial. A booklet giving guidance on how to submit items and photos is available on request.
