The Building

Standing dignified and unified in the more sedate side of Jalan Macalister, the four-storey Pusat Keuskupan Katolik is the nerve centre of the Diocese of Penang. Within these stately walls, not only are heavy-duty policies and decisions cast and the wheels of the diocese’s administration and finance secretariats churn, but it also serves as home to the Penang Office for Human Development (POHD), the Penang Diocesan Youth Network (PDYN) and the Penang Campus Ministry Office (CMO).

A large hall on the ground floor serves as an ideal venue for sessions and programmes for the various diocesan ministries. The Bishop’s office is located on the first floor, together with the administrative and finance secretariats.

The second floor is a perennial hive of activity as this is where a varied assortment of POHD, PDYN, CMO, BEC and Vocation programmes, projects and sessions are germinated, incubated and carried out to fruition. The four offices share the open floor plan on this floor.

The third floor houses the archives of the diocese.
