Welcome to the Catholic Enquiry Centre (CEC) website. Our hope is that this website will assist you in your faith journey. The Catholic Enquiry Centre is a national agency of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. The task of the Catholic Enquiry Centre is to promote the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Faith. The CEC provides opportunities for people to understand the Catholic religion by responding to specific requests for information and making appropriate resources available.
To those of who belong to another religious tradition or profess no faith we provide the opportunity to come to know Jesus Christ and His message. To those baptised into other Christian denomination we offer the opportunity to understand the doctrine and life of the Catholic Faith. To all we offer an invitation to embrace the Catholic Faith and way of life. We promote the Catholic Faith using digital technology, print media and word of mouth and provide information on the Catholic Faith to those who request it.
We also answer questions via email and phone for those seeking to understand a particular aspect of the Catholic faith. If you are located in Australia and are thinking about exploring the idea of becoming Catholic you may want to receive a free book Call and Response: An Introduction to the Catholic Faith. Please rest assured that all enquiries are confidential and that we never contact anyone without their consent.
To receive a personal answer to any questions about the Catholic Faith please: contact us.
