Chisholm Pastoral Region

The Chisholm region houses many parishes, including St. Joseph's at Lochinvar, which was the first church built north of Sydney.


Many young families have settled into this area and the region has a strong agricultural base. The Hunter River provides a strong focus here, and is incoporated into the logo for the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.
