“Australian Catholics provides a valuable link between the Church and everyday life for thousands of Catholics. It is the only Catholic magazine available for many Australian families today and as such it plays a vital role in the spread of Catholic values.” Bob White, (previously) Executive Administrator, Edmund Rice Education Australia

For 25 years, Australian Catholics has been helping bring faith to life in Catholic schools and parish communities. Our print publication and online resources explore Catholicism in today’s world, helping schools deepen and extend their faith formation activities.

Our premium AC+ subscription provides access to our Education Hub for your whole school community. The subscription gives you a licence to use our extensive archive of articles and resources in religious education and faith formation activities at your school.

Our print magazine is published four times a year and distributed to around 100,000 families across the country.

Capture the imagination of students

  • Our focus in the magazine is on meeting students where they're at in their faith journey, and giving them freedom to explore issues ask questions related to faith and justice.

  • Many of the articles in each edition are contributed by our young writers community, while our Spring edition each year is planned and written by a team of guest editors from Catholic schools across the country.  

Support teachers with relevant resources

  • Each edition of Australian Catholics is based around a theme that can be linked to topics covered in the RE curriculum, with articles that can be used to inspire discussion and reflection in the classroom. Many of our articles come with separate reflection guides and activities to extend their use in the classroom. 

  • Our Education Hub has more than 1000 articles and reflections available for use in RE and faith formation activities. 

Nuture faith in the home

  • Australian Catholics seeks to bring a sense of our global Catholic mission into the homes of Australian families. You can send print magazines home to families, plus our AC+ license gives your school license to use articles from our website in your e-newsletters. 

  • Our goal is to give families a sense that they not only belong to a school or parish community, but to a community that extends across the globe and through the centuries.

Subscriptions

If you order copies for at least half of the students enrolled at your school, you will automatically qualify for an AC+ subscription, giving anyone in your school access to our Catholic Teacher Hub via a simple e-mail sign up.

Send copies home to each family, and/or provide copies for teachers and students to use in the classroom, while giving teachers access to our wealth of online resources.

"Through Australian Catholics, I have had the experience of editing a magazine and learning how to put it all together. Australian Catholics has also given me the opportunity to interview guests live at the Australian Catholic Youth Festival." Victoria Fogarty, former internship program participant
