Bringing faith to life
For 25 years, Australian Catholics has been helping bring faith to life in Catholic schools and parish communities. The print publication and online resources explore Catholicism in today’s world, helping schools deepen and extend their faith formation activities.

The magazine is published four times a year and distributed to more than 120,000 families across the country. St Michael’s College has chosen to subscribe to the premium AC+ which provides access to the extensive archive of articles and resources for use in religious education and faith formation activities. There are also two weekly online newsletters, Catholic Teacher which feature resources for the classroom, and Parish Life, which features Sunday liturgy resources.

Cultivating faith in the home
Few Catholic publications connect as closely with the daily experiences of families as Australian Catholics magazine. Our articles focus on contemporary issues facing our society, and constantly seek to discern the most Christ-like way to respond to those issues. We encourage families to look at the human stories behind social justice issues such as asylum seekers, Indigenous affairs and homelessness.

The magazine seeks to bring a sense of our global Catholic mission into the homes of Australian families. The articles provide updates from Rome and from the Catholic bishops, and share stories of Australians on missions overseas. The goal of the resource is to give families a sense that they not only belong to a school or parish community, but to a community that extends across the globe and through the centuries.
