Welcome to our website......

In his 2005 Apostolic Letter, The Rapid Development, Blessed John Paul II talked about the Christian community’s significant steps forward in the use of modern communication to help share religious information.

Most Rev Robert McGuckinOur new website has been designed very much in the spirit of Blessed John Paul II’s view on modern communication and we hope it will provide a reliable, easy and engaging way of keeping each other informed about important diocese events and information. The website will also be able to direct you to other sites where you can find current information about the Church’s position on different issues. May our website be a means for religious formation, for evangelisation and catechesis.           Read more >>>

Missionary Sisters Jubilee Sunday 27th April 11.30amCome and celebrate 50 years since the sisters arrived in the Toowoomba Diocese.  In May 1964, five sisters arrived at the invitation of Bishop Brennan.  They came to serve the rural parishes by way of home visits and providing faith education for adults and children. Their travels took them to distant places like Thargomindah, Birdsville and Windorah as well as many districts on the Darling Downs.  They stayed with families or at local churches.  At that time they were commonly known as the Rosary House Sisters. The Sisters have worked in the Toowoomba Diocese throughout these 50 years in a great variety of ways.
