In order to request permission for ministry in the Archdiocese of Brisbane it is necessary to complete the ‘Application for Short-Term Ministry‘. We request that this form be completed and returned to the Episcopal Offices no later than two weeks prior to the commencement of your visit. In the case that two weeks’ notice is not possible, please submit the application immediately with a brief explanation as to the short notice.
Depending on the nature and duration of your visit, you may be required to complete our short online safeguarding training. Anyone wishing to minister in the Archdiocese of Brisbane for more than seven days in a calendar year also requires a Queensland Working with Children Card (Blue Card). Please contact the Episcopal Offices via firstname.lastname@example.org to be guided in the process of obtaining a Blue Card.
Please note Working with Children Cards from other Australian states are not valid in Queensland.
Once your Application for Short-Term Ministry has been received you will receive correspondence from the Archdiocese advising whether or not you have been granted the temporary faculties of the Archdiocese. Ministry within the Archdiocese is not permitted until this correspondence is received.
Should you have any questions regarding this process please contact the Episcopal Offices.
