Our Mission

Our mission is to lead others to Christ through word and action. 

“Missionary activity is an extension of the divine plan for salvation. It is a continuation of the evangelizinng ministry of Jesus Christ, who is the message as well as the messenger”

Bishop David spoke recently about what our missionary diocese looks like.  Read his words here 

Our diocese consists of lay people of all ages aswell as priests, deacons, religious sisters and brothers. 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 all aspects of life through birth, death and bereavement, sickness, loneliness, hunger, imprisonment, working with people with disabilities, and with the young and the old; through families; caring for the poor, the homeless and those who live at the margins of society; sharing our Faith with each person we meet and reaching out to our society so much in need of the Love of Christ.

This website hosts the activities, opportunities and information of those supporting that mission. There are many opportunities for you to engage within our diocese and we encourage you to spend some time exploring these pages.
