Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2020

Many parishes, including our own were unable to fully celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday at its usual time of July due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, The Cathedral Parish of St Joseph is taking the opportunity of NAIDOC Week 2020 to celebrate the contributions of Australia's First Peoples to the Catholic Church in Australia and the Catholic Diocese of Rockhampton.

Australians from all walks of life are encouraged to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

2020's NAIDOC week theme is 'Always Was, Always Will Be,' to recognise that First Nations people have been stewards of this continent for many thousands of years.
