Bishop Patrick celebrates the Mass of Thanksgiving

In a packed St Barnabas’ Cathedral on Sunday 20th November, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, Bishop Patrick celebrated the Mass of Thanksgiving which brought our diocesan celebrations of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy to their close.

The congregation included representatives commissioned to represent parishes from across the Diocese and, on National Youth Sunday, students and chaplains from the chaplaincies in DeMontfort, Derby, Lincoln, Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham and Nottingham Trent universities.

In his homily, Bishop Patrick said: 'Tonight then, in celebrating the Kingship of Christ Jesus in our lives, we have been reminded that the kingdom of God is not so much a place, as a people responding generously and openly to the selfless love, compassion and mercy of their King, shown in his ministry and in his actions on the cross. So, although the Jubilee Year of Mercy draws to an end in Mass this evening, and we give great thanks to God for all the graces and blessings received in the course of this Year, let us each pledge tonight that we will continue to do our best to respond to the challenges of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in the way we live our lives and relate to others.'

Catechism of the Catholic Church

The CTS is delighted to be able to present a new edition of the Catechism, bringing together the latest liturgical translations and the richness of the teaching of the Catechism with a clearer and more attractive layout. In line with its mission, the aim of the CTS has been to produce an edition that is easier to navigate and more affordable so that the Catechism can be accessible to everyone. For further information, please visit

As an aid to discovering and appreciating the riches of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Petroc Willey, the Professor of Catechetics at Steubenville University and a Consultor to the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelisation, has written an easy-to-read and very practical booklet, entitled Reading the Catechism. Designed to help readers understand the structure and content of the Catechism, as well as how to navigate it, it is a great tool for individual.

Amoris Laetitia (‘The Joy of Love’)

Pope Francis has written his Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on Love in the Family. Entitled Amoris Laetitia (‘The Joy of Love’), the Exhortation is the fruit of the two meetings of the Synod of Bishops that the Pope summoned to discuss the vocation of the family in the world of today.

Published during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Amoris Laetitia represents' an invitation to Christian families to value the gifts of marriage and the family, and to persevere in a love strengthened by the virtues of generosity, commitment, fidelity and patience,' and encourages 'everyone to be a sign of mercy and closeness wherever family life re- mains imperfect or lacks peace and joy’ (AL 5).
