With so many things happening and so much achieved in the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle during 2013, we decided to put together a small video to capture just some of the events that took place over the past year in the diocese.
The diocese provides pastoral, health care, social welfare and educational services for the community of approximately 150,000 Catholics in a territory that extends from Lake Macquarie to Taree and as far inland as Merriwa and Murrurundi.
With a multitude of building openings for CatholicCare and schools in the diocese, beautiful Mass celebrations and a number of annual and new events celebrated, we invite you to take a look at a snapshot of the year that's been as we aim to hear God's people and empower them to participate fully in Christ's mission.
We encourage you to also visit the news and events page of both the diocesan and Catholic schools websites to learn more about these and many more stories that took place in 2013.
Don't forget to also sign up to our weekly e-newsletter, the Dio Update, so you can read more about what takes place in the diocese in 2014.
