STOP PRESS: Come Home For Easter 2008

CASE created a range of materials to support individuals, groups and parishes to reach out to the lapsed during December 2007 and January 2008. The demand for resources was such that we've decided to also make these materials available to those who want to use or adapt them to invite people to 'Come Home For Easter' 2008.
