Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain

The Apostolic Nuncio represents the Holy Father to the Catholic Church in the UK. His role is equivalent to that of an ambassador, representing the Holy See to the UK Government - the Apostolic Nuncio to the Court of St. James's.

The Apostolic Nunciature is the building where the Nuncio's offices and residence are located. It can be found in Wimbledon, South West London.

The Apostolic Nunciature was established on 17 January 1982 - formerly the Apostolic Delegation (established 21 November 1938).

The Nunciature is currently awaiting the appointment of a new Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain. The previous incumbent, His Excellency Monsignor Antonio Mennini, was transferred to serve the Secretariat of State of the Holy See in January 2017.

The Chargé d’Affaires ad interim is Monsignor Matteo De Mori.
