A Catholic community is one that looks beyond its own needs and wants, said Auxiliary Bishop Donald Sproxton at the Indonesian Catholic Community of Perth (ICCP) 28th anniversary Mass on Sunday 15 November.

This year, on 9 May, marked 175 years since Perth became a diocese. The anniversary was not formally celebrated because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB and his curia wished to recognise this significant event. Odhran O’Brien, Director of the Archdiocesan Archives Office, has compiled a short reflection on the diocese’s foundation, which includes extracts from the missionaries who arrived in Western Australia during 1845.
