Welcome  -  Yaamindaay  -  Gawaymbanha 
to the Catholic Diocese of Bathurst

The Catholic Diocese of Bathurst provides a diverse range of educational options, from primary schools in small rural communities to large secondary schools. More than 9000 students attend 33 Catholic schools in the diocese, enjoying high educational standards in contemporary, Christ-centred learning environments. In partnership with parents and parishes, our schools nurture a relationship with Jesus, educate for academic excellence and prepare students for lifelong service in a faith-centred community.

Catholic schools are first and foremost religious schools. Our Catholic schools provide a unique opportunity for students to grow, both in relationship with God, and also in knowledge, understanding, wisdom and life skills, in a way that promotes the integration of their faith and their daily lives.

We acknowledge the Wiradjuri and Gamilaraay peoples, the traditional custodians of the lands on which our parishes, schools and offices reside. We also pay our respects to elders past and present.

    "We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace."
