Our Diocese

We, the people of the Diocese of Kerry,
in communion with the universal Catholic Church,
trusting in a loving and merciful God
proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people
by living out, in community,
our baptismal calling to love, justice and peace
through witness, worship and service

We are a Roman Catholic Diocese in the South West of Ireland made up of 53 parishes and 144,000 Catholics.

Our vision is of a diocese:
where we encounter a loving and merciful God, whom we worship in community and as individuals;
where we respect the dignity and giftedness of each other;
where we safeguard and nurture children and young people;
where we experience belonging and welcome;
where we listen to and learn from others;
where we engage with the challenges of an ever-changing world;
where we deepen our commitment to justice, peace and the integrity of creation locally, within Ireland and in the wider world;
where we respect and engage with other groups, cultures and faiths;
where we are committed to witness to the Gospel locally, nationally and in the wider world;
where we live in a way that protects and nourishes our endangered earth;
where we have collaborative structures and practices;
where we communicate with openness and accountability.
