Who We Are

About us
The Adelaide Archdiocese dates back to 1842, just six years after the first fleet arrived at Glenelg. Today it is home to more than 280,000 Catholics – about 20 per cent of the population – and covers 105,000 sq km. There are 69 parishes and communities with approximately 125 Mass centres and 90 Catholic schools with approximately 45,000 students.

Our Purpose
The Adelaide Archdiocese aims to be a community that lives and expresses the joy of the gospel of Jesus, serving others, especially in the places where people are suffering, disempowered by circumstance and furthest from life to the full.
This will be done by supporting the Eight Gospel Characteristics of Renewal:

  1. The parish is a community in which each member is called to a personal relationship with Jesus.
  2. Eucharistic liturgies are prayerful and fully participative.
  3. The Word of God is proclaimed in good preaching and in faithful lives.
  4. There is a warm sense of community outreach and welcome.
  5. The parish community is visibly engaged with those who experience poverty and need, and with those at the margins of society and church.
  6. The parish witnesses to God’s love for all the creatures of Earth.
  7. The parish is led by a priest with a pastoral team.
  8. Eucharistic communities that are viable will be enabled to continue.

Our Values

We adhere to our Catholic values, which are based on our love for God and for every human being, according to the gospel and the tradition of our Church:

  • The need for and importance of community
  • Positive relationships between individuals
  • Respect for the uniqueness of individuals
  • Professional commitment of staff
  • An ethical approach to our practice
  • The provision of quality services

This glossy, full colour book is about Catholic migrants from around the world who came to Australia in search of a better life. From their childhoods abroad to adapting to life in a strange new land, these moving stories make compelling reading. Some came from war-torn Europe, others from regions of conflict and oppression in Africa, Asia and South America. All had one thing in common – an unshakeable faith in God.
