The mission of our Church is defined in the document Evangelii Nuntiandi:
‘Evangelising is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelise (EN 14)
Our diocese consists of priests, deacons, religious sisters and brothers and lay people of all ages. We are called together to participate in our mission of sharing the Gospel of Jesus and building
the Kingdom of God.
We fulfil our mission 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.
Our curial departments support the local mission through our framework for mission, announced by Bishop David in July 2021.
