The See of Blackburn
On this page you will find pdf copies of the Diocese journal ‘The See’ stretching back to 2014. Each edition is distributed to churches around the Diocese by the start of each month. Some churches take printed copies; others receive it electronically and add it to their main parish magazine. Recently we have also started to produce one-off 'online only' editions of The See for special occasions to allow more in-depth coverage and you'll find links to those editions elsewhere on this page as well.
The See is edited by the Diocesan Communications Manager, Ronnie Semley.
Copies of The See
ALL churches should provide members of the congregation with access to The See. Email if you are having trouble getting hold of a printed copy via your church and you want one. Alternatively, every edition of The See is posted here as soon as it is completed.
Guidance for submission of articles
People and Places pages
The deadline for submission of articles for The See’s ‘People and Places’ pages is the first of every month for the following month (eg October 1 for a November edition). But earlier submissions are always welcome! Send all pieces to
Your contribution for People and Places MUST be submitted in completed form and as a Word file only. Please keep your submission brief … ideally 75 words … 100 words maximum. Please note that contributions will be edited according to space available and while we will endeavour to feature everything we receive we cannot guarantee to do so.
Other articles
If you wish to submit a more substantial piece for consideration we will be delighted to hear from you. Please contact the Communications Manager Ronnie Semley on in the first instance. Please do not assume an longer article submitted without prior contact will automatically appear. All editions of The See are planned well in advance. Space is always very limited and is in high demand so check first; and write it second! And the more notice you can give us the better.
Other submission criteria for articles (other than pieces for ‘People and Places’):
·         Email the Communications Manager (see above) before writing your piece. If accepted for publication you will be allocated either a half page slot (150 words plus picture) or a full page slot (300 words plus two pictures)
·         Articles must arrive in completed form by, or in advance of, a date agreed with the Communications Manager and with appropriate pictures (unless it has been agreed the article can be included without pictures).
·         Professional pictures are ideal; amateur shots must be clear and well-composed. Here's some handy tips to follow. We reserve the right not to use a picture if the quality is not good enough.
·         All pictures must have a caption, identifying everyone in the shot (for groups up to five people) or key people in the shot (for groups of six or more)
·         All articles will be edited according to the style and format of the The See.
