**** Please note theat the Retreat has been escheduled to 5-8 October 2020 due to concerns surrounding the Corona Virus.

NATSICC presents an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholics (and those working in Ministry with our people) to come together in Galong, NSW from the 20 - 23 April.
