TO KNOW, LOVE, FOLLOW JESUS
The Mission Statement of the Diocese of Chichester is :
TO KNOW LOVE FOLLOW JESUS.
This statement is based upon The Prayer of St Richard of Chichester:
Lord Jesus Christ, we thank you
for all the benefits that you have won for us,
for all the pains and insults that you have borne for us.
Most merciful redeemer,
friend and brother,
may we know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly,
day by day.
after Richard of Chichester (1253)
