Catholic Multicultural Pastoral Services

The Catholic Multicultural Pastoral Services (CMPS) was established in 1990 in recognition of the cultural diversity of the Archdiocese of Adelaide.

The role of the CMPS is to:

  • work within the Diocesan Pastoral Resource team (DPRT) to build a church inclusive of all cultures
  • support Diocesan agencies and parishes in their ministry to individuals and families from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds
  • support the migrant chaplaincies and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities in the Archdiocese
  • coordinate Diocesan services to the migrant chaplaincies and communities
  • support the migrant chaplaincies and pastoral workers in their ministry to people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds
  • liaise with other relevant church, ecumenical, community and government agencies engaged in providing settlement and services to new arrivals in South Australia.
  • report annually to the Bishop's Conference on migration and settlement issues pertaining to South Australia
