Welcome to the Diocese of Willochra

The Diocese of Willochra



he Diocese of Willochra covers some 90% of the geographic area of South Australia. It is a diocese of great contrast from the wineries and vineyards of the Clare Valley; the expansive horizon of the mid-north, Yorke and Eyre Peninsula wheat and barley fields; the semi-arid and arid lands as you move further north into the vast tracks of grazing land; mining and heavy industry; the fishing industry and tourism.

The contrast of small population centres occurring some twenty minutes apart along the Horrocks Highway in the south to the vast distances between population centres in the west and north is mirrored in the strength of each community’s identity. The people of Willochra are people of this vast land, truly they are the ‘Little Tribe, Big Vision’; people of HOPE following where God leads confident in the reign of God.

I hope you find this website informative.

Welcome to this ‘window’ into the diocese of Willochra.
