New Privacy Laws
The Parish Staff have attended a course on Privacy Compliance in response to the Privacy Act 1988.
“The mission of the Church and the many community services it entails require us to collect and hold the personal information of the many thousands of people with whom we deal.
But respect for a person’s dignity and individual rights flow from the heart of our Christian faith. Therefore I want to make clear that the Archdiocese will do all it can to comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act and the Australian Privacy Principles.”
Archbishop of Brisbane
