Becoming a Catholic


Welcome to our website......

In his 2005 Apostolic Letter, The Rapid Development, Blessed John Paul II talked about the Christian community’s significant steps forward in the use of modern communication to help share religious information.

Most Rev Robert McGuckinOur new website has been designed very much in the spirit of Blessed John Paul II’s view on modern communication and we hope it will provide a reliable, easy and engaging way of keeping each other informed about important diocese events and information. The website will also be able to direct you to other sites where you can find current information about the Church’s position on different issues. May our website be a means for religious formation, for evangelisation and catechesis.           Read more >>>

This event will provide on the ground experience and advice as to how we can best support efforts at peacemaking in this beautiful and troubled part of our world.
