*Archbishop’s Welcome

Thank you for visiting the English website of Nagasaki Catholic Archdiocese. Through this website, we aim to provide international pilgrims and visitors to Nagasaki with a basic “roadmap” for navigating the modern Archdiocese. In addition, we hope that these webpages will aid Catholics from other countries living within Nagasaki Prefecture (the boundaries of which coincide exactly with those of the Archdiocese). Finally, we hope that this website will be a useful tool for anyone seeking information about the Archdiocese.

Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace, I pray that this website may, in a humble way, help foster unity in the Church and in the world.

Peter NAKAMURA Michiaki
Archbishop of Nagasaki
