Together we share a vision that aims to meet the spiritual, educational, welfare and pastoral needs to all who choose to call the Illawarra, Macarthur, Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven their home.

Fulfilling this vision requires careful stewardship of resources and relies on the efforts of committed supporters in partnership with our dedicated clergy, religious, staff and volunteers.

We “give thanks” to all who provide the practical support necessary to fulfil this vision.

There are many ways that you can enable the mission and vision of your diocese. One way is to consider a gift. A gift that will teach, serve, help and heal. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

Bishop's Flood Relief Appeal

In recent days we have had towns in our diocese cut off; a number of our schools closed, non-operational or on alert; church buildings and agency offices affected by flooding and heavy rain; and clergy, staff, families, students and friends from our extended community experiencing another trauma. As a diocese, we would like to provide practical support for the people of Lismore. We also want to provide pastoral and practical support for the people in our own diocese who have been, and will continue to be, impacted by these floods.

Support the Holy Land this Good Friday, 15 April 2022.

Pope Francis has asked our parishes to support the collection which helps Christians in the Holy Land.

Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic schools and offer religious education. The Holy Land Collection also helps to preserve the sacred shrines. The wars, unrest and instability have been especially hard on Christians. In these times of crisis, the Holy Land Collection provides humanitarian aid to refugees.

When you contribute to the Holy Land Collection, you become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.
