Pastoral Placement Program

The Pastoral Placement Program (PPP) offers participants an experience of ministry in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. The purpose of this program is to enable participants the opportunity to experience different workplaces and ministries across the diocese. These ‘on the ground’ ministry work placements help participants explore the opportunities that are available to them to serve God and the local community of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. The Pastoral Placement Program provides participants a year-long discernment journey, involving the see, judge, act method, to make an informed choice about the possibility for future ministry.


Applications for the Pastoral Placement Program for 2022 are NOW CLOSED.
