Message from Archbishop Costelloe

Archbishop Timothy Costelloe attended Royal Commission hearings along with metropolitan Archbishops from other states, and spoke frankly and openly about the Catholic Church’s failings, acknowledging the real hurt and suffering experienced by survivors of abuse, and answering questions about the Archdiocese of Perth’s ongoing work to seek healing and reconciliation.

Now that the final hearing of the Royal Commission has concluded, Archbishop Costelloe has published a pastoral letter, as well as a video conveying the same message, for the Catholic Community of the Archdiocese of Perth, including Catholic schools.  Please view the Archbishop’s video here or read the attached letter:
