Busy Line or rather No Line!

A slight disaster has struck the Diocesan Education Centre, where the Communications Office is based, when we lost our internet connection last Friday afternoon. It has meant no emails and no access to the Diocesan website and this blog since last Friday. It appears we will be without internet until at least next Wednesday 26 November so there will be only a few enteries on the blog over the next few days through access elsewhere.

It also means that although emails can now be accessed remotely we may have lost some emails and so if you think you sent one and have not received a reply then it is probably best to ring at least for the next week. The telephone number for the centre is 01293 515666 and then follow the instructions to reach the person you need. The Communications Office can be contacted directly on 01293 651170.

Please be patient and bear with us. Technology is wonderful but then again ...

'The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed, and he will open the scroll'

  1. Can you tell me how or where to access school & orphanage records for period 1920 to 1936? Is ther an archivist for the Diocese? I am trying to trace my mother's background after her birth in Hastings 1920 and being left there by her mother who returned to Ireland. Can anyone help me?

  2. There is a diocesan archivist Hazel State who works every Wednesday at the Diocesan Archives in Hove. To contact her email
