Theme: "Your word is a lamp to guide my feet" (Ps. 119:105)

Celebrate Cleethorpes is a non-residential weekend conference for the whole family. Over the last 20 years, up to 1500 people have attended the Celebrate Family Conference in Ilfracombe. Young and old alike have joined together in a vibrant faith-filled atmosphere to celebrate the love of God.

Pastoral Letter of the Diocesan Administrator of the Diocese of Nottingham
appointed to be read at all Masses celebrated on the First Sunday of Lent

This Sunday, in Saint Barnabas’ Cathedral, I will be meeting all the people from across our Diocese who will be baptised or received into the full communion of the Catholic Church this year. The Rite of Election is an important event in the annual life of our Diocese; it reminds us that God has elected, or chosen, us to share in the new life that Jesus won for us in his Death and Resurrection. We share in that life in Baptism, that great sacrament in which we are consecrated by the Father to fulfil Christ’s mission for us as Prophet, Priest and King, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
