Very Rev Isidore Anantharaj, Episcopal Vicar for Immigration
I'm very pleased to introduce our Sudanese Catholic Community who came to Australia after surviving the horrors of war and displacement. They have shown great leadership in the way they have maintained their faith and culture, instructed their children and interacted with the Australian community. Our blessings go to them as they walk with great courage into the future. We thank them for the blessings they bring to us and encourage them to become missionaries as they share their strong and devout faith with the Australian Church. God bless you all.
Anna Dimo, Pastoral Care Coordinator
Welcome to our website where you will discover that we are a busy community offering many opportunities. We thank God for our faith and for the support of the Australian Catholic Church which helped us to establish this centre and educate our children. We are proud to share our history and our personal stories with you to show why this is a special place. May we especially care for those who are struggling and need our love and support. We give thanks for our volunteers and supporters who help us in so many ways. May God bless our St Bakhita community.
