The National Council of Priests is an Australia wide organisation of Catholic Clergy (Bishops, Priests, Deacons) and Associate Members (Lay and Religious) – who join together to support each other in their ministry in the Church.

Founded in 1970 in the Spirit of Vatican II, the NCP is committed to the fraternity and further education of clergy and to representing all clergy in the public forum.

The NCP is acknowledged by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.
