We are a Catholic Community who profess, celebrate
and witness that Jesus lives, and to whom the Father sends
His Spirit. We express that belief by living out and spreading
the message of the Gospel.

Plenary Council 2020

In May 2018, Australia’s Catholic Bishop’s launched the most significant review of the Church in Australia in recent times, the last one being held in 1937. The purpose of the Plenary Council is to plan for and direct the future of the Australian Catholic Church in the most open and inclusive way possible. It is to be a meeting of the whole Church in Australia, including everyone, bishops, clergy, religious and lay faithful.
The unfolding process is over a three-year period.
