On this section of the website you can learn more about our diocesan services and departments. You can also find a contact list for our diocesan support services here.

What we do

The various departments help form part of the diocesan curia and the professional support services of the diocese.

The primary responsibilities of the professional support services are to:

  • Assist the Bishop in his important role of governance of the diocese;
  • Ensure the effective administration of the diocese in accordance with civil law

This includes the proper stewardship and management of finances, the upkeep, maintenance and development of property, health and safety arrangements and matters relating to employees for all parishes and the diocese.

All the assets of the diocese, property, diocesan schools and any parish or diocesan investments are held on trust by the Trustees for the diocese and parishes.

In 2018, after a review of diocesan governance, the Trustees resolved to appoint a Chief Operating Officer to improve the effectiveness of our administrative, advisory and decision making procedures in order to provide greater support to our parishes and schools.
