About the Catholic Diocese
The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle represents the Catholic Church in a region extending from Lake Macquarie to Taree and as far inland as Merriwa and Murrurundi. A diocese is a community of Christ's faithful - it represents a portion of the people of God in a particular area, which is entrusted to a bishop.
The Diocese acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land, sea and water ways on which the Diocese is located - Awabakal, Biripi, Darkinjung, Kamilaroi, Wiradjuri, Worimi, Wonnarua. We commit to the ongoing journey of Reconciliation.
