About Us

The Centre for Faith Enrichment offers short daytime, evening and weekend courses on a wide range of topics at various locations throughout Perth and online. These include theology, Church history, spirituality, the Sacraments, Christian living, scripture and much more. Our courses are presented in a relaxed and friendly environment – with no exams or assignments – and are open to all who are seeking to explore questions of life, faith and meaning. The Centre for Faith Enrichment also awards scholarships for biblical studies through the B.J. Hickey Biblical Foundation.

Pope Francis' dream for the Church in Australia is that it may become

"a synodal Church. A synodal church is one which listens,

which realizes that listening is more than simply hearing.

It is a mutual listening in which everyone has something to learn....

the faithful people, the bishops, the bishop of Rome:

all listening to each other,

and all together listening to the Holy Spirit,

in order to know what the Spirit says to the churches. "
