Becoming a Catholic


From the Bishop......

Over the last couple of months I have been doing some travelling and visitation west of Toowoomba. During Catholic Education Week in Cunnamulla I was able to meet all those involved in Catholic education in the surrounding areas. The blessing and opening of the new administration block at Sacred Heart Primary School was also an opportunity to meet the students along with many of their parents.

Later in the week there were similar gatherings in Roma and Toowoomba.Most Rev Robert McGuckin
Elsewhere in Horizons you will see more detailed reports of the many activities during Catholic Education Week.

In mid August I visited Charleville, Augathella and Quilpie for several days. Father Peter Doohan was a wonderful host. On Saturday afternoon we drove to Augathella and visited the hospital and aged care facility before celebrating the evening Mass.             Read more >>>
