Cardinal Newman Faith Resources Incorporated is in Church law a private lay association of Christ's faithful, canons 298 and 299 ff. In Civil law it is an incorporated association under the Department of Fair Trading of the Government of NSW. Our association includes some priests as well as laity.
Our functions are:
- National Religious Education Resource Centre
- Specialists in Family Catechetics
- Helping Catholic Homeschoolers
- We are non-profit and are dependent on donations
Originally, Cardinal Newman Faith Resources Inc. was called the Cardinal Newman Catechist Centre; then by permission of the Bishop of Parramatta (as required by canon 300), the Cardinal Newman Catholic Bookshop. However, these earlier titles proved too restrictive, hence our renaming.
