Message from Bishop
The Catholic Diocese of Bunbury welcomes you. This website serves as a means of communication for our parishes, scattered across the South-Western portion of the State of Western Australia.
Ours is one of the most rapidly growing dioceses in the country. It includes some of the most rapidly increasing population centres in Australia.
I hope this website will be of service to all outside the Diocese who seek to learn something of our Catholic life.
The Most Reverend Gerard Holohan
Bishop of Bunbury
Christmas Message from Bishop
In today’s troubled world, Christmas celebrates the first coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who, through the Holy Spirit is making such a difference to the lives of those who relate personally with him. As they pray, worship and strive to live as he taught, they experience his power in their lives.
We celebrate how so many are experiencing Christ’s guidance. He is helping them with their challenges, problems and moments of confusion. He is helping too those who are wondering about the direction of their lives, be they young or old; stricken by serious illness or grieving the loss of a loved one or a marriage; whether they have lost their job or their financial security.
