Welcome

A final graduation was held on Thursday 11 April in the Cathedral, for students who completed their studies in 2018.   Archbishop Comensoli, President of the Institute, presided.  After the graduation there was a final reception in the Cathedral Room of the Cardinal Knox Centre.   

Former students and alumni may continue to apply to the Registrar for copies of academic results transcripts and records until the final closure of the administrative offices of the Institute.  The procedure for applying for copies of academic results transcripts after the final closure of the administrative offices of the Institute will be advised.

The Archdiocese of Melbourne has been a proud sponsor of the John Paul II institute for Marriage and Family since its establishment in 2001.

During its 15 years of operation, the Institute has engaged students in the teaching of the theology of marriage and family, bioethics and religious education and catechetics at the highest standards. The Council of the Institute is proud of the contribution made by both faculty and students to the Church and the community.
