Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Northampton in England Minimize

Key to the life of the Church is the ability to communicate. Our mission is to spread by word and example the Good News of Jesus Christ for which he died and rose to new life.

This website is one great way to communicate. While the website is primarily intended as a source of information for the people of the Diocese and for those visiting the Diocese, we hope also that it will be helpful to anyone seeking knowledge of our Faith.

Like anything alive, our Diocese is growing and changing. Many people from other countries and cultures are becoming very much part of the life of our region and of our parishes and schools.

The Diocese is involved in many different areas of life. Not just in parishes, but in schools, through to hospitals and prisons; working with people with disabilities, and with the young and the old; promoting the value of family and of marriage; caring for the poor, the homeless and those who live at the margins of society; handing on our Catholic Faith to each generation and reaching out to our society so much in need of the Truth and Love of Christ.

Our website provides an open window into the life and mission of the Diocese. I hope this site will help you to get to know us and the work that we do. And I hope that you will feel the welcome that the Church in the Diocese of Northampton wishes to offer you.

Peter Doyle - Bishop of Northampton
