The Diocese of Arundel and Brighton covers the geographical area comprising West and East Sussex, that part of the County of Surrey that falls outside the Greater London
Area and the city of Brighton and Hove.
A&B (as the Diocese is more commonly referred to) was inaugurated on 28th May 1965 when the Archdiocese of Southwark was divided into two parts. The choice of Arundel as the site of the Cathedral for this new Diocese goes back to the centuries' long link
(circa 850 AD) between the Duke of Norfolk, whose family seat is Arundel Castle,
and the Catholic Church.
The present Bishop of our Diocese is the Right Reverend Richard Moth. Bishop Richard, born in 1958 in Chingola (Zambia), was ordained priest in 1982 and became Bishop of Arundel and Brighton in 2015. He is A&B's fifth Bishop following on from Bishops Kieran Conry (2000-2015), Cormac Murphy O'Connor (1977-2000), Michael Bowen (1971-1977) and David Cashman (1965-1971).
