From the Bishop......

We all seek an easy access to current and accurate information on a variety of topics. The Diocese of Toowoomba website has been designed with the user in mind and we aim to have up-to-date information about all upcoming events within the diocese and beyond, just a few clicks away.

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.Bishop McGuckin

The Diocese of Toowoomba website has been designed very much in the spirit of Blessed John Paul II's view on modern communication and we hope it provides a reliable, easy and engaging way of keeping each other informed about important diocese events and information. The website is also 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.

MUSIC COPYRIGHT WORKSHOP 9 June
This workshop is designed for parish secretaries, music coordinators and diocesan school staff and will cover everything you always wanted to know about music copyright but were afraid to ask. Doing the right thing by composers and publishers is a matter of justice as well as law. For many people, the issue of music copyright has grown increasingly complex. The Australian Pastoral Musicians Network has put together a session on copyright which Brisbane based musician and composer Michael Mangan has offered to present here. A number of sessions have been offered in Brisbane and have been very well received. The workshop will be held on Tuesday 9 June from 2pm to 4pm at St Thomas More's Church, 71a Ramsay St Toowoomba. For more information or to register contact John Briffa on (07) 4632 0989 or email jbriffa@twb.catholic.org.au
