Whether you are visiting from the press or media, or a parishioner or member of the clergy from our Diocese with an interest in Communications or a story to publicise, these pages are for you!
After more than two decades as a BBC producer and director of religious TV and Radio programmes (including Songs of Praise) and as a news and current affairs journalist, I was appointed in 2016 to devise and implement a Diocesan Communications Strategy, and all my work is geared to facilitating this mission:
- to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the widest possible audience through the dissemination of ‘good news stories’ of general interest from our parishes, schools and charities;
- to dispel myths and misconceptions about the Catholic Church, her clergy and laity, with the aim of enthusing and encouraging the faithful of all ages, welcoming back the lapsed, and having a positive effect on vocations;
- to listen and to facilitate internal communications and collaborations, enabling all to feel heard, valued, acknowledged and supported as individual members of our Diocesan Family.
