Geelong Deanery Vision & Mission

The purpose of the Deanery is to foster, by means of combined action, both the mission of the Church and pastoral care.

We as Catholic people in the Geelong region, inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, invite co-operative participation in the life and service of our Church, so as to bring more effectively encouragement, hope and compassion to our communities.

The role of the Deanery Committee is to initiate and develop those activities that are critical to, or relevant to, the vision of the Deanery. We will witness the Gospel message by:

  • Respecting parish identities
  • Working collaboratively with parishes to build Church
  • Exercising leadership that supports and empowers
  • Promoting and supporting the sharing of resources and services
  • Co-ordinating and facilitating communication
  • Planning for future needs and directions

The Deanery logo design centres around the Cross of Jesus and the "G" of Geelong. We are the community of believers in today's world. Our unique environment is depicted - the sea, the You Yangs, city and country life. The "blocks" on the Cross remind us that we are a network of parishes. The rays of light and the streams of living water symbolise our mission - Pastoral Care, Building the Community, Education in Faith.
