Our Mission

Like anything alive, our Diocese is growing and changing. Many people from other countries and cultures are becoming very much part of the life of our region and of our parishes and schools.

The Diocese is involved in many different areas of life. Not just in parishes, but also in schools, hospitals, prisons and religious communities; working with people with disabilities, and with the young and the old; promoting the value of family and of marriage; caring for the poor, the homeless and those who live at the margins of society; handing on our Catholic Faith to each generation and reaching out to our society so much in need of the Truth and Love of Christ.

We are now live streaming Cathedral Services. This means that you can view all our services live online if you are unable to attend the Cathedral in person. 

Major liturgical services are also recorded and then available to view on-demand.
