Pastoral Letter: Human beings need humanity not Euthanasia

In the midst of our Covid 19 woes, we are looking for anything that breathes hope and new life into our fearful world.

Yet, in the midst of this long winter, comes an unwanted visitor that can only fuel hopelessness: possible legislation on euthanasia. This is a real possibility in both the ACT and NSW.


The vision and work of the Archdiocese starts and ends with the person of Jesus Christ. We invite you to encounter God's love through Jesus.


We invite you to discover, or re-discover, the Catholic faith and connect with our Church community.


From the central west and far south coast of NSW to the suburbs of Canberra, our work and community involvement is broad and far-reaching. We invite you to discover what we offer.
