Bishop’s Welcome

My dear friends in Christ!

Welcome to our Diocesan website. I hope you find it helpful whether you’re from our Diocese or you’re just passing through. The Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes is a unique Diocese full of strong, faith-filled people from all walks of life. The people of the bush in my Diocese have much to offer, particularly in terms of their faith. Generally, this faith has been formed by tough times and a tough environment and manifests itself through resilience, good humour, and a ‘down to earth’ spirituality. Theirs is a faith that has endured unique challenges and their insights concerning Catholic life are precious and of great value to me. Come on out to Wilcannia-Forbes and say “G’day” and get to know something of how our special corner of Catholic life might be of support to you.

May the Good Lord protect you and may His Mother under the title “Perpetual Help” Patroness of Wilcannia-Forbes keep you close to her Son.

God Bless

Bishop Columba
