Cardinal Nichols has called for the UK to "move beyond the divisions which have been evident at many levels in our society."
In a statement to coincide with the country's formal departure from the European Union, he said: "It is important for everyone to renew a commitment to each other through everyday acts of kindness, being good neighbours, welcoming the stranger and caring for the most vulnerable in our society."
He added: "In these ways we contribute to the common good at every level of society, from national politics to individual generosity, particularly for those in greatest hardship and uncertainty. As Catholics, with all people of good will, we commit ourselves to playing our role in this endeavour."
