About Us


Aboriginal Catholic Ministry

In dialogue and partnership with the Aboriginal people, the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry in the Diocese of Lismore is part of a national response of the Church to work with Aboriginal people in building up an authentic Goori mission and ministry.

Our Mission Statement is:

“To enter more deeply into dialogue with the Goori people, the wider Church and each other to serve the building up of an authentic Goori Catholic mission and ministry”.


The main responsibility for the ACM resides with the Bishop and then the Parish Priest in dialogue with the Aboriginal Catholic Elders.
