Welcome to the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide

Welcome to the official website of the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide. Through our parishes, schools, agencies and ministries we strive to follow in the footsteps of Australia's first saint, Mary MacKillop, whose mantra was "never see a need without doing something about it". As people of faith, hope and love, we are committed to building a world where the dignity of every human being is respected.    


The Office for Renewing Parishes was established in February 2016 to support the renewing of the diocese through the renewing of parishes, the central priority of the Archdiocese of Adelaide for the foreseeable future.
