DIOCESE OF LISMORE

Go to Diocesan Site



Ballina and Wardell are parishes in the Diocese of Lismore. As you can see from the map of N.S.W. on this page, the diocese covers the North Coast of the state apart from the Manning Valley.

The diocese was cut off from the original Diocese of Armidale in 1887. Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett is the fifth Bishop of Lismore.

The eleven dioceses of N.S.W. make up more than one third of the twenty eight geographical dioceses of Australia. There is a national Military Diocese and there are three Eastern Rite dioceses.
