Welcome to The Diocese of Nottingham

Our Diocese is a very large diverse area covering Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire and most of Nottinghamshire with rural, coastal and inner city areas. Bishop Patrick, in his homily 4th November 2018, stated that there is potential in our diocese to become more outward-looking and missionary in its sense of purpose and direction. This is achievable by having a strong spiritual foundation which will be firmly in place over the next few years. The three themes which we are using are:

1. ENCOUNTER

2. DISCIPLESHIP

3. MISSIONARY DISCIPLESHIP

The Gospel joy which enlivens the community of disciples is a missionary joy. (EG21)

The joy of the Gospel is for all people: no one can be excluded. (EG23)

God Who Speaks: Year of the Word 2020

Scripture, the Bible, the word of God – whatever we like to call it – is at the centre of everything the Church does. It’s in our prayer and worship, how we understand the world, how we are called to live and how we relate to each another. The year 2020 will be the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’ and the 1,600 anniversary of St Jerome’s death. These events in the life of the Church have motivated the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales to make 2020 a year of focus on the Bible and

“Seek refuge in Mary because she is the city of refuge. We know that Moses set up three cities of refuge for anyone who inadvertently killed his neighbour. Now the Lord has established a refuge of mercy, Mary, even for those who deliberately commit evil. Mary provides shelter and strength for the sinner.” - S. Anthony of Padua
