We hereby erect a Parish of the National Catholic Church of the United Kingdom and Ireland for the pastoral care of the faithful within the City of Gibraltar, within our Archdiocese of Anglia & Cambria.

The Parish is dedicated to Our Lady of Europe, St Bernard, and St John XXIII.

Liturgical celebrations shall take place wheresoever the Parish Priest so chooses within the City.

We hereby appoint our Brother in Christ, the Right Reverend Monsignor M.J.P.B. Carchrie Campbell FSDM, Auxiliary Bishop of our Archdiocese, as Parish Priest.
