    Why Jesus Matters In Modern Australia? – Archbishop Mark Coleridge (Facebook Live)

    Welcome everybody to my place, this big old house called Wynberg, which means ‘vineyard’. It’s been the home of the Archbishop’s of Brisbane for about years and it’s seen a lot of things through those years.

    A response to the New York Times article of September 12, 2017

    I preface my remarks by saying that I haven’t read the RMIT Report but only the New York Times report of the Report: The report suggests that the Report isn’t quite up to speed with the state of play in Australia at this time. It seems to reflect the situation of earlier times in…

    Archbishop on Abortion Bills

    Last week I was asked and agreed to do an interview on the proposed abortion legislation in Queensland.

    Address at Re-launch of “At Home with God’s People – Our Catholic Faith” resource

    I hadn’t realised until today that the history of “At Home with God’s People – Our Catholic Faith” stretches back to 1982. I suspect that Rob Cosgrove (from Evangelisation Brisbane) was a part of it even in those days. Much has changed but Rob hasn’t! Yet that is a remarkable fact because what you see…
