Home Mission

The Home Mission Office sits within the Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis and acts as a point of reference for evangelisation in dioceses, movements and Catholic organisations in England and Wales.

The Home Mission Office exists to help the local Church make the joy of the Gospel a reality in England and Wales. It’s part of the Department of Evangelisation and Catechesis of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

The Home Mission Office is holding a two-day 'New Evangelisation Summit' in Brentwood, Essex, from 4 - 5 May 2018.

It's estimated that at least two-thirds of the baptised Catholic community in England and Wales are non-churchgoing - approximately four million people. This makes a significant constituency of people who, in most cases, self-identify as Catholic but never or rarely attend Mass. The Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis has initiated a national project to support ministry to this group of people.
