Bishop Charles Gauci has been Bishop of the Diocese of Darwin since his appointment by Pope Francis in June of 2018. His ordination as Bishop was held three months later, at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Cathedral. 

Born in Malta, Bishop Charles Gauci moved to Australia with his family at the age of 13. In 1977, he was ordained as a priest in the Archdiocese of Adelaide and ministered at several Adelaide parishes until his move to Darwin. He also took on many Archdiocesan leadership roles during that time, including the Chair of the Council of Priests.
