Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)



The mission of the Outreach Team is to make disciples by creating opportunities for people to meet Jesus in a life-transforming encounter. Outreach works in the contexts of family life, parish, young people and culture.

The Outreach Team can help with the “how”:

  • How do I become a missionary disciple?
  • How do I remain one?
  • How do I grow as one?
  • How do I make more?

Outreach brings together four agencies that support the evangelising mission of the Archdiocese.
