The 4th Archdiocesan District of was established by His Eminence, Archbishop Stylianos of Australia as far back as 1987. In 2020, Australia’s new Archbishop, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios renamed this District the ‘ District of Brisbane’ and an Assistant Bishop was appointed.

The ‘District of Brisbane’ encompasses the large Australian State of Queensland and the country of Papua New Guinea.

The District’s offices are located on the same site as the Parish Church of Saint Paraskevi in Taigum, a Northern Suburb of the City of Brisbane. Here are also found other activities involving a number of organisations under the umbrella of our Archdiocese.

Of the 14 Parish & Community Centres of the District, 5 are found in the fast-growing South-Eastern Metropolitan area of Queensland, and a further 9 in regional areas of the State.
