Always Mindful - A history of Catholic Education

”Always Mindful’ celebrates almost 140 years of Catholic schooling in Central Queensland under a succession of nine bishops and supported by hundreds of committed and dedicated religious and lay people determined to see Catholic education flourish despite isolation, lack of resources and poor pay. A ‘labour of love.’ is how author, John Browning, describes the efforts of generations of people who have contributed so selflessly to Catholic Education.

The book details the growth of Catholic education from 1863 to 1990, under the various bishops who have served this area since European settlement began beginning with Bishop James Quinn, the first Bishop of Brisbane, and ending with the eighth Bishop appointed to the Rockhampton Diocese, Bishop Bernard Wallace.
