Our priests and deacons join with me in introducing you to the Catholic Church in Jersey, which forms part of the Diocese of Portsmouth, led by Bishop Philip Egan.
Although we are now united in one canonical parish, we Catholics in Jersey worship in seven different churches and the chapel of the Little Sisters of the Poor. Each church has its own traditions, which have evolved in the past 150 years. In collaboration and active participation, clergy and laity work together, not only to promote the life and mission of the Catholic Church in Jersey, but also to work together both civically and ecumenically for the common good of our island.
We hope you will enjoy this virtual tour of the Catholic Church in our beautiful island and perhaps come to share in the life and worship of our church communities.
Monsignor Nicholas France
The sacrament by which I enter the Church and become an adopted child of God
The reception for the first time of Jesus' Body and Blood
The sacrament in which I am sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit
The joining of a man and a woman in a life-long union of love, which is open to the gift of new life
We pray a loved one who has died and give thanks to God for his or her life
