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)

The Bishop's homily at the University of Nottingham (13 October, 2019), honouring Cardinal Newman

"Newman recognised the fundamental truth that it is necessary for our ideas concerning God to be as clear and precise as possible, because the way in which we think about God shapes very much the way we pray and relate to Him."

“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
