This message was given to a meeting of diocesan clergy at Buckfast Abbey on Friday February 6th and to a gathering of catechists, teachers and parish volunteers on Sunday February 9th. We hope that this inspires you and your parish in the call to a New Evangelisation.
Rt Rev Mark O'Toole, Bishop of Plymouth
As the new Bishop of Plymouth I welcome you to the website of the Diocese. I hope you find it interesting and that it helps you understand something of the rich life of faith that is lived here in the South-West. At the Episcopal Ordination recently I shared these words with the Diocese. As you read them I ask you to pray for me and for the diocese.
With my kindest wishes and prayers in Our Lord,
Bishop of Plymouth
