Sharing the joy of gospel
I commit the Diocese of Wagga Wagga to being a safe place for adults at risk and children by continuing to improve our processes, training and expectations in accordance with the Office of the Children’s Guardian (OCG) 10 Child Safe Standards, the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and the Australian Childhood Foundation.
The Diocesan Provident Fund (DPF) was established by Bishop Henschke in 1961. The DPF exists solely for the benefit of Diocesan agencies, ministries, parishes, schools and other related Catholic entities.
The DPF operates on a “not for profit” basis whereby annual surpluses are distributed to Parishes, Clergy, Schools, Infrastructure and Restoration funds, Charitable and Pastoral Works and retained by the Diocesan Provident Fund to ensure its ongoing financial stability.
Vianney College was established primarily for the training of priests for the Diocese of Wagga Wagga. However, it has accepted requests from bishops of other dioceses and from religious superiors to train students destined for other areas and communities.
