“You will come to know the truth and the truth will set you free…”
— John 8: 32

Welcome to Issue 43 of The Record Magazine. We hope you like our updated design.

On our front cover, we feature an image of the La Pietà, the marble sculpture of Christ and the
Virgin Mary at Golgotha by Michelangelo, now in Saint Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.

In his 2024 Easter Message, Archbishop Costelloe invites us to remember that Jesus Christ, risen
from the dead and alive with us, is at the heart of Easter, just as He is at the heart of the Church,
and of every aspect of the Church’s life.

We feature outgoing Vicar General, the Very Rev Fr Peter Whitely VG, who retires from his role
at the end of March. We thank Fr Peter, who as Episcopal Vicar, Effective Communications,
has helped steer the charge in the development of The Record Magazine and the work of the
Communications Office.

Don’t forget that these and many more stories are available at
