Conversation morning around same-sex marriage blessings
Saturday, 3rd of July


St John’s Cathedral is home to a community which seeks to bring the best of Anglican tradition into dialogue with the issues and needs of our day.

We strive for open-minded conversation, seek to practice inclusion, and reflect on how we might see our beliefs put into action. We want this to be a place where people are encouraged to seek God and progress their own spiritual journeys.

The Cathedral itself, a renowned Brisbane landmark, serves as a magnet, where diverse people gather to worship, celebrate, seek solace, converse and learn.

Peter Catt +
Dean of Brisbane

Welcome to St John’s Cathedral. The news items below highlight topics of general interest.

You may find information about our regular worship times on the SERVICES page.


The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) has listed The Cathedral and The Deanery (Adelaide House) because of their significance to the heritage of Queensland and Australia more broadly. Adelaide House was the first Government House when Queensland was created on 10th December 1859. The balcony on which Sir George Bowen read the proclamation that day has been the subject of a great deal of work to restore it to a stable and safe condition. The cathedral is the only stone-vaulted church in the Southern hemisphere and is highly regarded as a sublime example of neo-gothic architecture. Donations to the Cathedral fund are used to enhance and presence the fabric of the magnificent building.

Donations to the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) for these appeals are allowable as deductions for tax purposes.

Bishop George Browning: Following Jesus in Unhelpful Ways

George Browning, in his role as Bishop of Canberra, was told by the then Prime Minister John Howard that his contribution to public debate was “not helpful.” Bishop George joins  Dom, Peter and Sue to share stories from Australian politics of where truth telling was an unwelcome intrusion, how self-interest and power are so often protected at the expense of the vulnerable and what this means for those who seek to follow the way of Jesus.

Mercy Community Services’ Romero Centre  
providing safety and support to asylum seekers.

“The ones who have a voice must speak for those who are voiceless.”
Archbishop Oscar Romero (1917-1980)

Asylum seekers leave their home countries when they see no future for themselves by staying. In doing so, they face complicated challenges, trauma, and uncertain futures. Australian immigration policy is not easily negotiated. The Romero Centre in Dutton Park provides a warm welcome, and individualised case support, restoring a sense of dignity and independence for people seeking asylum who are living in South East Queensland.

The Romero Centre services are offered within a cross-cultural framework with a commitment to human rights and the principles of social justice. Inspired by the work of Archbishop Oscar Romero from El Salvador, a passionate human rights campaigner, the Romero Centre gives a ‘voice to the voiceless’.

Their individualised case management service enables access to an appropriate mix of support and expertise, connecting asylum seekers with emergency support (including food and shelter), legal assistance, English classes, medical care, trauma counselling, and social connection groups. Among the social connection groups are sewing groups, a multicultural men’s group, an art and craft group, and a group exploring computer and internet access.

There are asylum seekers living in Brisbane with limited or no access to income. The Romero Centre provides health and hygiene packages, food essentials, and support with accommodation and clothing. There’s a growing need for practical supplies to suit families and children.

Conditions around temporary visas are complicated. Simple errors made when completing applications may cause them to be delayed or rejected. The Romero Centre provides access to experienced lawyers and asylum process specialists, to assist with these applications, and interpreters to support asylum seekers in their appointments with lawyers and government representatives.

The Romero Centre also arranges for access to training to boost self-confidence and provide real connections with the community.

The Romero Centre is doing as much as it can to help asylum seekers in our region. We can help by offering financial support.

Asylum seekers are real people, with real stories. They seek the safety we enjoy. People who flee from dangerous countries are trying to escape trauma and persecution. It’s as simple as that. But for hundreds of people in the Brisbane area, life is anything but simple – it’s complicated and frightening. Beyond the basic needs, there is isolation, with no friends or family.

Esther* fled Iran to seek safety away from a socio-political environment that is oppressive for women, with little or no respect for social justice and human rights. Like many asylum seekers arriving in Australia, Esther struggled to find basic food and shelter when she first arrived in Brisbane. A caring member of the local community referred Esther to the Romero Centre when she was desperately in need of support and at high risk of suicide. Haunted by trauma from her life in Iran, Esther needed help to keep fighting for her right to live in safety. Having found the help she needed, Esther continues to be involved with Romero community events, group activities and information sessions, sharing her experiences, learnings and culture with other people seeking asylum. She has new hope for her future.

Everyone has the right to feel safe, supported and welcome. We try hard to welcome those who come into the cathedral. Can we help the Romero Centre to show that same welcome to those seeking asylum in Brisbane?
