Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong

Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong (CEDoW) was established in 1952 and serves Catholic systemic school communities across the four regions of the Illawarra, Macarthur, Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven in NSW Australia.
Many parishes and schools have much longer histories, with some dating back to the early days of European settlement.
Stories abound of wonderful lay people, clergy and religious who helped build the foundations of the vibrant Catholic school system we now enjoy.

In these podcasts we share some of these stories.

The traditional owners of the lands upon which our Catholic schools are built are the indigenous people of the Dharawal, Tharawal, Gundungurra and Yuin nations.
To this day, our Catholic systemic schools are greatly influenced by the life and culture of Aboriginal communities and continue to pay respect to elders past and present. Visit our website

for more information.

From The Heart

My name is Josie Cooks. As we adjust to social distancing and working and learning remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re going to be sharing stories with you about our experiences, as a way of staying connected and being in community with each other.
