A letter to the people of the Diocese from Bishop Paul Bird can be read here.
We are a community of communities from the Murray to the sea.
Inspired by the Gospel and nourished by the Eucharist,
we follow the example of Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit,
reaching out in joyful and humble service,
caring for all of God’s creation,
growing in love day by day
and looking forward to life with God forever.
Diocesan Vision Statement
In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands in which the Diocese of Ballarat sits.
We would like to pay our respects to the Aboriginal Elders past, present and future for they hold the traditions, memories and wisdom of Mother Earth on which we place our feet today.
