Our Vision

To be a strong and faith-filled Catholic fraternity committed to serving our church throughout Australia.

About the Knights of the Southern Cross

The Order of the Knights of the Southern Cross is a national organisation of Catholic laymen who operate with the support of the Australian Bishops. Autonomous Branches of the Order operate in each Australian State. The Order is guided by the Catholic faith and the Christian faith and charity . It strives to serve the wider community and support those in need.

The Knights of the Southern Cross established the not for profit organisation, Southern Cross Care to look after the older members of the community and their needs.

In 2021, it was the 100 year anniversary of the Knights of the Southern Cross in Queensland which was marked (post Covid) with a celebration and special Mass.
