The CCD exists to bring the message of God's kingdom through effective evangelisation by delivering quality Special Religious Education to Catholic students in State Government schools.

CCD Logo with Tagline

We are inspired by the Holy Spirit and connected in Jesus Christ who is the way, the truth and at the centre of our lives and ministry.

The Catechists in our Diocese undertake a vital evangelising role, educating children and young people and forming them in the Catholic faith. Read the latest statement from the Catholic Conference of Religious Educators in State Schools (CCRESS) who continue to defend the important place and contribution of SRE to Public Education and the choice of parents for their children to be formed in the faith of their family. Please continue to pray for our Catechists and the great work they do for families and our Church.  Download Statement from CCRESS
