The Chancery Office manages the Catholic Diocesan records and attends to the maintenance of the Diocesan Archive.

One of its main functions is processing the Diocesan Marriage documents and seeing that their perpetual records are properly maintained. The Chancery is also the repository of all Diocesan Clergy records. It is responsible for the Diocesan compliance with the policies and procedures of the Australian Catholic Migrant and Refugee Office (ACMRO), concerning Diocesan overseas clergy. ACMRO operates under the purview of the Australian Catholic Bishop Conference (ACBC). The Chancellor is also delegated to keep minutes of meetings relevant to some of the Bishop’s Diocesan committees and programs.

The Chancery office is headed by Linda Esguerra, Diocesan Chancellor. It operates during business hours, from Monday to Friday.
