Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, an Australian community, in a worldwide religious congregation.
Jesus loved with a human heart: with him we proclaim his love to the world.
We work to discover through advocacy, healing and reconciliation, God's presence in our world.
We are to be on earth the heart of God. God has no other heart but ours.

The work in the diocese was originally undertaken by the Australian province of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. MSC from the Papua New Guinea province joined them, so that members of both provinces are there now, with Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred, although members of other religious congregations work in the diocese.
Bishop John Doyle MSC and Bishop Des Moore MSC were the first two bishops of the diocese.
