Welcome to the digital home of the Australian Confraternity of Catholic Clergy. We are an association for Catholic bishops, priests and deacons of the dioceses of Australia. The ACCC is proudly supported by many lay and religious associate members. Through The Priest, our annual Conference, and many local activities, the Confraternity promotes the sanctification and fraternal life of the clergy in fidelity to the teaching of Christ Jesus and His Church.

Victorian Catholics are back in lockdown,
deprived of access to Mass and the Sacraments.
We are inviting priests and their parishes outside Victoria
to spiritually sponsor a priest and parish within Victoria.
Victorian priests are invited to nominate their parishes
for spiritual support from a non-Victorian parish.

Twice a year the ACCC publishes a journal titled The Priest. Beautifully presented, it features news about the life of the Confraternity as well as various articles and papers presented at our Annual Conferences. While some content from previous editions is available online, the latest content is exclusive to the current print edition. Subscription to The Priest is included in full or affiliate membership of the ACCC.
