This is an opportunity to make a personal witness to your faith, especially important today, when there are so many voices challenging Catholic beliefs and the Church's authority.
All who sign this statement of fidelity to the Catholic Church and her teachings will receive a "welcome packet", including a sample copy of our journal, Voices, and other information. Please e-mail us to expedite getting the Welcome packet to you.
About Letters ... We are very glad to get your letters, and we read each one. We print as many as we can, and give preference to those of widest interest.

Please include your name and address (which may be withheld on request). If your letter is not intended for publication, please tell us. Letters may also be e-mailed.
Letters to the Editor for Eastertide: Voices Writers Excellent | “Alter Christus”
Britain’s Catholic Young Writer Award 2010
The Keys, the Catholic Writers’ Guild of England and Wales, presents an annual Catholic Young Writer Award to pupils at Catholic secondary schools. In 2010, to mark the beatification of Cardinal John Henry Newman, and the visit to Britain of the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, students were invited to write something expressing Newman’s quest for truth. The winner was Corinna Keefe, of St. Leonard’s/Mayfield school in Sussex, whose poem is reprinted below. Corinna received her prize at the November 2010 meeting of The Keys at St. Mary Moorfields Church in London.
To seek a shaft of sun amid a grubby world
I followed turns which turned again
On maps stained with a million paths
I ended lost in smoke and glass.
In fog, in shades of bitter dark.
My soul passed, prayed for honest wings
To strive for wonder in the sky.
Soft feathers fell and veiled my eyes
At last I must be still and watch
The little lights of glowing souls.
Beneath the grime there shines a good and faithful God.
