The Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle’s mission has long been “to live the joy of the Gospel and share it with the world” – and so we are incredibly grateful to our 10,000 volunteers who, in partnership with our clergy and staff, assist us to fulfil this mission by serving in the Hunter-Manning region.
The haunting words of the song We Sing For Those Whose Song Is Silent brought an end the dedication of a memorial to the survivors and victims of sexual abuse at the former Marist Brothers High School in Hamilton.
Sean Scanlon, who was recently appointed the first-ever Chief Executive Officer of the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, is very much a born-and-bred Novocastrian. He is also the first person in any Catholic diocese in Australia to have the title of CEO. Prior to being appointed to this new role, Sean was Vice Chancellor Administration.
