Lord Brennan spoke at Heythrop on the Christian's responsibility in public life and he called for a meeting of Catholic organisations to discuss the way forward. ACTA was not mentioned but I think it should be involved in such a meeting with Catholic Union, Catholic Voices, Catenians, etc.

Congratulations to Cardinal Vincent Nichols. Ad Multos Annos

A Diocesan Leaders’ Seminar is planned for 6-7 May 2013 at Hinsley Hall in Leeds (Leeds Diocesan Pastoral Centre.)  The purpose of the Seminar is to gather together the experiences of groups from across the UK, to pray together, and to plan future work.  Whilst the Seminar is primarily for diocesan leaders, there are some spare places available.
