The Diocesan website

We endeavour to keep the website up to date at all times. If you spot something that needs updating, or you experience difficulties in accessing information, please e-mail [email protected] and one of the team will follow it up.

Dealing with the press

The Communications Team also manages the public face of the Diocese. In its press work, the team aims to keep the local and national media informed of good news stories in and around the Diocese, and helps to manage the not-so-good news at both Diocesan and parish level.

If you would like assistance in reaching out to the press with a good news story or you would like advice on how to respond to a press request, please e-mail [email protected] or telephone one of the team.

If you need help in managing more difficult news or would like to discuss a confidential communications matter, please e-mail the Communications Director at [email protected].
