Romero Centre is transitioning to the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane

We are very pleased to announce that from 1 July 2024, the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane will assume oversight of the Romero Centre.
The Romero Centre will continue to provide critical services to hundreds of families and individuals seeking asylum. We will continue to be supported by the generosity of donors and volunteers who work alongside the team of 5 staff members to provide vital support to those most in need.
Securing the future of the Romero Centre is an exciting new chapter for the Archdiocese of Brisbane and for the Romero Centre. We look forward to continuing to partner with you all in this exciting new season.

Love has no borders

Here at the Romero Centre, we welcome and support people seeking asylum, we walk the path where human dignity is considered sacred and where love has no borders.

Inspired by the mission of Oscar Romero and a deep respect for the human sovereign soul, the Romero Centre aspire to support the most vulnerable people in our community.

The Romero Centre is passionately and wholeheartedly working towards a community that we all want to be a part of.
