A warm welcome to the Diocese of East Anglia. I hope that you will find our website interesting and informative.
Our Diocesan mission is to respond to Christ’s call to proclaim the gospel. I pray that your contact with us, through this website and, if you are in East Anglia, through meeting us, will encourage you to enter more deeply into the encounter with God in Jesus Christ who is the source of our life and joy.

The East Anglia Diocesan Children’s Pilgrimage will take place at Walsingham on Tuesday May 30, during half-term week, led by Bishop Alan Hopes.
It starts from the Friday Market Place in Walsingham at 10.45am, with Mass at 12 noon at the Catholic National Shrine.
Organiser Chris Storman said: “Being very close to both the Visitation and Pentecost, our theme this year is to be Our Lady (or Mary) and the Holy Spirit. We also hope to incorporate something special around the Thy Kingdom Come movement into the day.
“We are hoping for good weather and all are welcome.”
Celebrate East Anglia is a family conference which is now running for it’s fifth year.
It is a weekend which will include lively praise, daily Mass, a time of Adoration and an opportunity for Reconciliation and Prayer Ministry. There will also be an opportunity for quiet private prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the Celebrate chapel. There will also be groups (called streams) for children and young people of all ages. One of these streams will be run by the Ignite Team and the Ignite Lite volunteers so please get in contact if you are interested in getting involved in volunteering!
