Catholic Voices experts to prepare way for Pope's visit to Britain

.- During his address to the bishops of England and Wales this week, Pope Benedict XVI confirmed that he will be making a visit to the United Kingdom this coming Fall. In preparation for his arrival, a panel of Catholic experts will provide the media and others with briefings on what the Church teaches.

The Catholic Union of Great Britain reports that it is organizing a panel of Catholic experts to "articulate the conviction of the Church on major contentious issues" in preparation for the Holy Father's visit, which will take place next Fall.

The "well-informed Catholic speakers," who are currently being sought, will be available as of March 2010 for media queries and provide a presence in the public square and give "expert briefings" on the teachings of the Catholic Church. According to the Catholic Union, 20-25 representatives "drawn from a broad spectrum of the Church" will form the team.

The Catholic Union of Great Britain, by its mission, advocates and upholds the moral and spiritual interests of the Church and works to further Christian views in the public sphere, without regard to politics or affiliation.

The Catholic Union has declared that the "Catholic Voices" project has been approved by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, although they are not spokespeople for the conference.
