Aboriginal and Islander Catholic Council (AICC)

The AICC is the official representative organisation in the Catholic Church for Aboriginal and Islander Catholic communities - across the state of Queensland, and throughout the Diocese. The AICC has branches in Dajarra, Mount Isa, Palm Island and Townsville city. Each branch has its own style of operating and identifies needs appropriate to its own area, but each works in unison on the overall aims and goals of the AICC.
