Walking together

The season of Easter that we have been experiencing for several weeks is known in Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) terms as a time of Mystagogy – a time for post-baptismal catechesis.

Our stance on the Voice

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Council expresses our support for a constitutionally enshrined Indigenous Voice to Parliament.


Marian Procession

Congratulations goes to the Diocese, the Events team and those who contributed to making this year’s Marian Procession a most successful ceremony
