NATSICC visit to Forbes

NATSICC visited the Diocese of WIlcannia Forbes as part of the our Regional Council meeting initiative, which aims to include and engage communities located outside of urban centres. Thanks to the Bishop, community and staff of the Diocese for making the council feels so welcome.

NATSICC Highlights

From youth projects to Spiritual formation retreats NATSICC is active in promoting and building the gifts that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders bring to the Church in Australia.

Our message to Pope Francis

Delegates at the 2016 NATSICC Retreat sent a message to Pope Francis asking for his blessing of our 30th Anniversary celebrations of St John Paul II's visit to Alice Springs.


The visit and speech was a watershed moment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholics and provided hope and encouragement for our people to claim our rightful place in the Catholic Church in Australia.

Elders Story Sharing Project

The stories of our elders are important to our continuing traditions. They are also import to document the early interactions of the Catholic Church with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

2015 NATSICC Assembly

The 2015 Darwin Assembly in Darwin was blessed to host some of the most inspirational Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander speakers we have ever assembled.


Watch as the issues of faith, culture, social justice and spirituality are explored from vastly different points of view.


Music planed an important role at the Assembly and we were fortunate enough to capture the songs and dancing that brought the group together.
