Welcome from the Bishop

Thank you for visiting the website for the Catholic Diocese of Rockhampton. The faithful of our Diocese stretch across the coastal beaches to the dry, far west of Queensland and cover regional cities, small towns, farming, business, mining, tourism and so much more. I trust this website will give you a glimpse of our Diocese, help you connect with a local church or event, find out about us and our work, and grow in your faith.

Most Rev Michael McCarthy
Bishop of Rockhampton
