Ambassador information

Do you want to do more to serve the Church?

As a faith community reaching across South East Queensland, the Archdiocese of Brisbane has numerous ministry opportunities that positively impact people’s lives. You can help to inspire and enable Catholics throughout the Archdiocese of Brisbane to provide needed support to vital Church agencies and programs that make a real difference to the lives of real people.

What’s involved?

  • You will need to attend Mass services on the weekend of the Campaign to assist the priest and staff in setting up the Church or Church centre to conduct the appeal.
  • You will also make an announcement before Mass begins, to inspire and encourage your parish, to support essential ministries of the Church.
  • The workload can be greatly reduced in each parish by having ambassadors and volunteers for each Mass service.

You will receive

  • Training and support: You can choose to attend an Ambassador training workshop or access materials online, to help you prepare for the Campaign weekend. You can also learn about all the ways that the local Church helps to serve the spiritual and charitable needs of many people in your local area.
  • Acknowledgement from the Archbishop: You will receive a letter of thanks from Archbishop Coleridge at the end of the Campaign, and a certificate of recognition for your CV (if requested).
