Ministry Broome

At the Broome Campus, we are committed to a liturgical/ritual life that embraces the daily lives of our students. Prior to first practicums students are ritually ‘sent off’ wearing the garb of Notre Dame; international nurses and teachers days are marked; the dead are remembered; those completing their courses are blessed with oil to strengthen them for the journey ahead. We take every opportunity to foster reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians.

Pastoral care is a priority on the Broome Campus. Many of our students are away from home for the first time, others have the constant concern of juggling study with family life. The Campus Minister is always available to listen to the challenges facing students, especially those new to Broome and new to a rigorous study program. The Minister contributes to the spirit of community through his involvement in local events including the Barrgana Lecture Series and the Broome Shinju Festival.

The Campus Ministry Office is located upstairs in the Academic building next door to Lecture Room 11.  The Campus Minister is available to students and staff by appointment. Eucharist is celebrated in the campus Oratory each Wednesday at 8am and Morning Prayer each Friday at 8am. Other rituals mark the ongoing life of the students and the liturgical year.

  • Month of rememberance

    November is traditionally the month in which the Church remembers Her dead, and in a special way we are invited to remember our family and friends who have died, especially those who have passed in the previous year.

    The Month of Remembrance commences on November 1st with All Saints Day, which is a feast that is celebrated by the Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran and Anglican Churches.
    This is then followed on November 2nd by All Souls Day, where we remember the dead of all faiths, of all times.
    Here at Notre Dame, in the lead up to November, we invite you to record the names of your family and friends who have died in the past year, so that as a community we might remember them in our prayers. 
    Please enter the details of your loved ones below or visit the Campus Ministry Office in the Broome Library and write their names down in our book of remembrance.

    Into your hands, Father of mercies, we commend our loved ones in the sure and certain hope that, together with all who have died in Christ, they will rise with him on the last day. 

    Merciful Lord, turn toward us and listen to our prayers:
    open the gates of paradise to your servants and help us who remain to comfort one another with assurances of faith, until we all meet in Christ
    and are with you and with our brothers and sisters for ever.
    We ask this through Christ our Lord.
    R. Amen.
