The Joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus

The Joy of the Gospel n.1

faith formation & spirituality

Our vision is that every Catholic in the Archdiocese grows in his or her awareness of ongoing faith formation and spiritual renewal is intrinsic to living a Catholic life. We provide an accessible faith formation online course, and come to parishes, communities and groups to provide adult formation by arrangement.

The RCIA is available to adults seeking to be baptised or received into the Catholic Church. We assist those leading RCIA groups by supporting and resourcing them in their ministry.

online faith formation course

Evangelisation Brisbane offers an online faith formation experience open to all within the Archdiocese. At its core are ten central themes relevant to understanding and living the Catholic faith in the contemporary context


Alpha takes people on a journey often leading to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It enables people to ask their questions, share ideas, build friendships and experience the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Alpha is a parish tool for evangelisation based on hospitality, sharing and open conversation over a series of 10 sessions exploring the key messages of the Christian faith.
