A message from Bishop Patrick

Our vision for the Diocese of Nottingham is to become a more outward-looking missionary Catholic community. After much consultation, we have revised our deanery pattern, and are now in the process of reorganising and sometimes amalgamating our parishes. To ensure our faith communities are well served and supported in mission-focused initiatives, we have also launched our Mission Enabling Programme.

Looking to the future, we must now develop the most effective financial plan, one that is well informed and meets our needs. To achieve this, we are commencing a new three-month consultative phase which will begin shortly after Easter Sunday. With the help of professional support, we will gather opinions from clergy, laity and parishioners to help shape our funding strategies. If you are asked, I would greatly appreciate your participation and the sharing of your insights either through a one-to-one conversation or an at-Mass survey.

I look forward to beginning this consultation process and to updating you on a regular basis. In the meantime, I ask that you please pray for our mission and for this journey of discernment, that it will bear fruit and enable us to assist our communities in their discipleship and to equip them with tools to share the love and message of Christ with others more widely.
