The Diocesan Justice and Peace newsletter for Spring “Just Now” is available to be perused at the back of church. With a focus on our ‘diocese of disciples’, this issue illustrates the twin vocations of justice and charity, with articles on local Catholics in action:
  • Among people who live on the streets of Derby
  • With families experiencing food poverty in Loughborough
  • Taking up leadership of Pax Christi UK
…and a closing feature on ‘natural burial’.  Many thanks to all our contributors.

We also take this opportunity to outline an exciting new project in Nottingham Diocese.  The first step is a questionnaire survey in each parish, which has been sent to each priest, asking:
  • What social outreach projects and activities are already going on in your parish?
  • What are the needs you encounter?
  • Who in your parish is willing to be a point of contact on social action?

If you would like to help with your parish’s response, particularly on that last question, I am sure your priest would appreciate the offer. The project which flows from it, Faith into Action, aims to strengthen support for Kingdom-building work across Nottingham Diocese.  People like you are at the heart of it.  Find out more in Just Now or at – and then let me know how you would like to take part.

The sacraments lie at the heart of the Church’s life, and so our preparation for each of the sacraments takes place in a way that respects the nature of each sacrament and the person receiving it.  We try and express how each sacrament is a touch of God in our lives and at the same time links us with the community of his family, the Church.
For details about specific sacraments go to the relevant page.
Baptism, Marriage, Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
