About CDF Bathurst:

Growing your parish.

At the Catholic Development Fund, our mission is to financially support the 17 parishes that make up the Diocese of Bathurst. We do this by offering great investment opportunities to our parishioners, and any profit that we make after you've been paid interest, goes straight towards supporting and funding great projects like building schools, restoring churches, and offering services.

Catholicism with community at its core.

The core purpose of the Diocese of Bathurst is to spread the word of God. We have done this for nearly two centuries by operating ministries which benefit our community. Examples of these ministries are our beautiful churches, schools and crucial services like Centacare, which operate throughout the central west of NSW.

Primarily, our Catholic mission finds its home in the schools that we fund. Our world needs good, strong people with a commitment to social justice and Catholic schools strive to play a part in that.
