Catholic Enquiry Centre

Supervised by:
Bishops Commission for Evangelisation

Catholic Enquiry Centre (CEC) is the national office for faith promotion of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. CEC was founded in 1959 to allow all people to come to a better knowledge of Christ and the Catholic Church in Australia.

The CEC is responsible for:

  • providing clear information about the Catholic Faith for those who are searching for faith, primarily by providing 'enquirers' with information about the Catholic Faith in the form of a series of eighteen pamphlets (lessons)
  • assisting Catholics seeking a return to the practice of their faith, including listening and responding to questions about the teachings and practise of the Church
  • communicating with people of other religious backgrounds, as well as promoting inter-religious understanding.
