Working with our groups in our community

In addition to having representatives on several committees, we collaborate with a number of organisations to help further the goals of CLRI(NSW).

Catholic Religious Australia (CRA)

We cooperate with CRA, the national body for congregational leaders in a number of ways:

• sharing premises and other resources
• working together on particular projects, especially related to social justice
• participating in each other’s conferences, workshops and seminars.

NSW/ACT Bishops’ Conference

We work with the NSW/ACT Bishops’ Conference through:

The Mixed Commission – dealing with matters such as group funding of congregational schools, professional standards, leadership roles in the church and promoting women’s participation in the church.

The Joint Stipends Committee – deciding the basis for, and the annual increase in, the stipend paid to religious working in various church sectors across NSW.

Catholic Education Commission NSW (CECNSW)

CECNSW brief our Education Committee four times a year on important issues in Catholic education and in congregational schools in particular.

Sydney Catholic Education Office

The Diocesan Director of the Sydney Catholic Education Office meets with the Education Committee and leaders with congregational schools to discuss matters of significance for congregational leaders, principals and schools.


Each year we raise funds for the KAIROS program to meet the needs of novices as they begin their religious lives.
