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, 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)


LIVESTREAMING MASSES AND OTHER SERVICES
AROUND THE DIOCESE

During this time of self-isolation and social distancing, many parishes are keeping in touch by live-streaming their Masses or producing Youtube videos.

Bishop Patrick McKinney streams Masses from his private chapel in Bishop's House.

This week: Mass Sunday at 10 am

For those with no internet access, an audio Sunday Mass is available at 10 am. For the telephone number see here.

“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
