Australian Catholic Bishops Conference

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference is the main organization in charge of coordinating the activities of Catholic bishops in Australia. It is a biannual meeting of bishops, but also includes a permanent Secretariat and a variety of commissions dealing with specific and ongoing issues. Through its Media Center, the ACBC also issues statements to the media regarding a variety of public affairs, ranging from family planning to immigration policy. In addition, its Research Directorate provides advice for laypeople and policy makers on bioethics and legal-political issues.
