CRA represents leaders in the Australian Church, who are active in effecting change within the Church and society in a diverse range of areas, some of which are justice, professional standards, education, stewardship and governance.

CRA is a peak body in which male and female religious are in the same organisation. This step by Australian male and female religious to join together in one body is indicative of the deep commitment by Australian religious to work together to further the mission of Christ in Australia, while honouring their own Congregations’ individual charisms.


CRA’s mission is to promote and support the contemplative and prophetic voice of Religious in Australian society. Our values are being attentive to the Spirit, inclusive and prophetic.
