'Australian Catholics continues to show forth a freshness and creativity, something that requires talent and enthusiasm in production. In a western world that can seem to be growing weary of Christianity, we need magazines like Australian Catholics to continue to show the vitality of the Church in its people.'
Bishop Greg O’Kelly SJ
Chair of the Bishops Commission for Catholic Education
'Australian Catholics provides a valuable link between the Church and everyday life for thousands of Catholics. It is the only Catholic magazine available for many Australian families today and as such it plays a vital role in the spread of Catholic values.'
Executive Administrator, Edmund Rice Education Australia
'Through Australian Catholics, I have had the experience of editing a magazine and learning how to put it all together. Australian Catholics has also given me the opportunity to interview guests live at the Australian Catholic Youth Festival.'

'Australian Catholics is a way of introducing topical issues in a non-threatening, non-judgemental way. The Rockhampton Catholic Education Office has provided it for the schools in our diocese because we believe that it provides schools with stories that are both contemporary and thought provoking. We believe students will be exposed to religious issues in a way that stimulates and challenges them. We recommend Australian Catholics to all our schools as a way of ensuring that topics in religion and contemporary society are considered and discussed. We believe it provides a great stimulus for schools to consider social justice issues.'

'I loved the content of the last issue of Australian Catholics, "Sharing the Joy". It was fresh, unique and a lot of fun to read. I'm looking forward to the next issue and what they've got up their sleeves!'
'The Reflections and Notes for Australian Catholics magazine was excellent. We used them for our Year 12 Ethics: Relationships Unit.'

'Australian Catholics provides a variety of contemporary stories which are very relevant to students, families and staff. It engages students in contributing to articles and the topics are insightful and accessible for all faith levels. The Sandhurst Catholic Education Office has provided it for the schools in our Diocese because we believe that it is a significant contributor to the invitation to faith for families and staff. We recommend Australian Catholics to all schools as a means of building the dialogue between faith and life within the school, parish and broader community.'
