Kaya (hello)! At the Centre for Life, Marriage & Family, we strive to strengthen the fabric of society by strengthening marriage and family, and building a Culture of Life. We believe in the innate dignity of the human person – a core teaching of the Catholic Church; every person is born with God-given dignity, and nothing can change or remove that from us. 

“The family is where we are formed as people. Every family is a brick in the building of society.”

Pope Francis



We serve individuals, couples, families, schools, and community groups in:

  • Pre-marriage education
  • Counselling
  • Relationship enrichment
  • Family Life Education
  • Natural Fertility Management
  • Culture of Life information, education, publications

We acknowledge:

The Whadjuk Noongar people and their families to the North, East and South, and pay our respects to Ancestors and Elders, past and present;

The Boodja (Country) where our office sits is, always has been, and will always be, entrusted by God to the Whadjuk Noongar people; and,

That those of us living here who came from across the oceans live on and benefit from land that was stolen.

We are grateful that First Nations peoples selflessly and earnestly share with us the knowledge of their community and the wisdom of Country. Together we build lasting relationships and communities that recognise and value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, histories, and cultures. We are listening and we are learning.

“A person is an entity of a sort to which the only proper and adequate way to relate is love.”

Pope Saint John Paul II

We also acknowledge that safeguarding is a shared responsibility prioritising the care and protection of adults and children.

By providing a safe and welcoming environment, actively identifying and managing risk, and complying with the Safeguarding policy, guidelines and legal obligations, we serve Christ and his Church to uphold human dignity as the foundation of our mission.

CLMF are committed to implementing the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards (NCSS). We annually undertake a self-assessment using the Safeguarding Activities Assessment Tool to continuously improve and monitor the implementation of the NCSS.

We aim to be a safe, welcoming, and inclusive place, free from all forms of abuse for all – especially people experiencing vulnerability.
