The Military Ordinariate Collection this ANZAC Day

The MILITARY ORDINARIATE is the Catholic Diocese of the Australian Defence Force (ADF). It has been charged with the pastoral care of the uniformed members of Australia’s Navy, Army and Air Force, their families and of the civilians employed by the Department of Defence.

Over 25% of those in the ADF declaring a religious affiliation declare themselves as Catholic. There is often a misconception that the Ordinariate is fully funded by the Commonwealth Government, however this is not the case and the Diocese relies heavily on the generosity of Australian Catholics.

The Military Ordinariate is very grateful for the past contributions and support of the Diocese of Bathurst. As we approach ANZAC Day, please consider what help you can provide to assist in the pastoral care of the men and women of our Defence Forces.
