The Catholic Diocese of Maitland Newcastle's innovative design of St Bede's Catholic College has secured it a spot in the finals of a prestigious awards event.
The Urban Development Institute of Australia's (UDIA) NSW division recently announced the Diocese as a finalist in its Excellence in Design category, with the winner to be announced in Sydney on 12 August.
Love of family and an interest in her Worimi and Biripi culture inspired 8-year-old artist Milla Turner’s painting ‘My Family’ and earned her the top prize in the Hunter category of the Young Archie Awards.

Archbishop Charles Balvo became the first Nuncio to preside at the Sacred Triduum in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, just two weeks after presenting his credentials to the Governor-General of Australia on 1 April.
