A Word of Welcome

from Archbishop Mark Coleridge

President of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference

Welcome to The Official Directory of the Catholic Church in Australia which appears now in its 2021 - 2022 edition. The Directory provides a unique insight into the vast array of communities and services that make up the Catholic Church in this country and beyond. It speaks of a Church deeply committed to the work of the Gospel and to the service of the world.

The journey through the strange, new landscape of COVID-19 has continued through the last year and stretches into an unknown future, made less daunting by the arrival of vaccines.

Yet great uncertainty remains. In the midst of it all, one thing is sure: The Official Directory is a unique help to staying in touch at a time when distancing can be more than physical.

I thank Sally Heath and Christine Moore of the National Council of Priests office for their work in compiling the Directory with a care that goes beyond efficiency. It is a real service to information and communication within the Church and, to that extent, a gift to all of us as we make our way through affliction to a more peaceful time.
