Welcome to our revamped website and I hope that you will find it a helpful tool to know about our Diocese and to engage in its life and activities. We offer this site as a platform of communication to all people of good will, so that we can share views and experiences, and in that way support each in the journey of life as we work towards a better world. For those who are Catholics, we hope that here you will find a space to interact with fellow Catholics and in the process come to appreciate and live your faith. May your interaction with this site increase your desire to be in constant communication with God through prayer, reading of the Bible, study of the Catechism and apostolate work. We re-launch this site in the year in which Pope Francis invites us all to rediscover the mercy of God. I pray that all who visit this site will be led to the knowledge and experience of God’s mercy; and having grasped God’s love for them, that they in turn will adopt attitudes and practices of mercy towards others, particularly towards those who are in need. May God bless you and please pray for me and our Diocese.
