Supports our five Central Queensland ministries: the Western Pastoral Ministry, which connects our people in the remote central west of our Diocese; the Woorabinda Ministry, providing a Catholic presence to the people of Woorabinda and promotes reconciliation and healing; Stella Maris Seafarers’ Centre, supplying respite for seafarers who spend much of their lives on ships and away from their loved ones; The Catholic Prison Ministry, contributes a chaplaincy service to people who are incarcerated; and also, providing support for parishes in the central west crippled by drought and population decline.
Assists in providing accommodation, health support and any other services that allow dignity to our priests in necessitous circumstances in retirement and poor health.
Assists in the ongoing conservation of our Diocesan Cathedral and any restoration work necessary into the future.
Giving to where most needed ensures that the Diocese can direct your funds towards the above ministries that are experiencing a shortfall in a given year or ensure that in natural disaster and emergency situations we can reach out to help those in need as these situations arise.
