Welcome! You have found the new website for the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn where you are invited to encounter Jesus, community and mission.

This is a beautiful Archdiocese in both land and people, and it is a privilege to celebrate this beauty with pages you are about to see. Our hope is that you find information, encouragement and truth about the Church around you – your Church.

To find out about the Archbishop and the history of the Archdiocese, go to About and have a look around. If you are looking for the mass times of your local parish, go to Parishes and Mass Times. To keep up with the Youth and Young Adults events and news, including Guinness and God and World Youth Day, explore the Youth and Young Adults homepage. If you are curious about what being a Catholic is like or are seeking some truth and theology to feed your faith, explore Catholic Faith, which provides a wide scope of reading, written within our own Archdiocese. For practical information about organising a Baptism, Marriage or Funeral, see the FAQs. For general information about what is happening around the archdiocese, or to send through information about an event happening near you, visit our Archdiocesan calendar.

If you would like a weekly update of the news and events happening around the Archdiocese, sign up to the Encounter E-news bulletin. Encounter has news, updates and feature articles focusing on the three topics of Jesus, Community and Mission; topics relevant to all stages and walks of life. This can be your regular encouragement to notice Jesus in your life, be involved in your community and walk the mission you have been called to.

These pages have so much more to offer, so feel encouraged to explore, and spend time finding things that uplift, challenge and help you.
God bless, and happy browsing!
