Pastoral Ministry and Formation

Catholicism is the most ancient and enduring Christian Church.  Jesus established his Apostles under the authority of St Peter to go and proclaim his love to the world.  Today the Catholic Church continues this same mission guided by the Bishops, who are the successors of the Apostles, and under the leadership of the Pope, who is the successor of St Peter.

Message from Bishop Declan:

Our faith should make us joyful as we respond to the call of Christ, to go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News. If we are to do this effectively, we need to know Christ Jesus as well as knowing about him.

These pages are intended to bring you closer to Jesus, to enable you to carry out your mission as members of the Church and wider community.

Let the message of Christ live in your hearts and minds.
