For your prayer: there are several dioceses in Australia that are awaiting new bishops.  They are:

  • Archdiocese of Brisbane
  • Archdiocese of Perth
  • Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes
  • Diocese of Sandhurst
  • Diocese of Toowoomba
  • Diocese of Armidale

Some other dioceses will follow in the not-too-distant future due to their bishop turning 75:

  • Archdiocese of Hobart
  • Diocese of Lismore
  • Diocese of Ballarat
  • Diocese of Rockhampton

Given that we have only 29 Latin Rite circumscriptions, that’s quite a lot of change.

Catholic Coordinators offers a prayer to St Charles Borromeo, patron saint of bishops, which some of us have been using in Brisbane as we pray for our next Archbishop.
