The Bakhita Centre

The Bakhita CentreThe Bakhita Centre

St. Josephine Bakhita was born in Sudan in 1869. She was abducted as a child and was traded into slavery. She was later sold to an Italian consul and came to know about Catholic faith during her stay in the Canossian Sisters of the Institute of the Catechumens in Venice. In 1896, Bakhita was consecrated as a sister of the Institute of St. Magdalene of Canossa. St. Josephine Bakhita was involved in various services such as cooking, sewing, embroidery and attending door in the Schio community. In 2000, when Pope St John Paul II declared her a Saint, she became the first person from Sudan to be canonised.

The Bakhita Centre located in the Northern Suburbs of Darwin is named after her. The centre provides medium to long-term accommodation for single men in Darwin. It has the capacity to accommodate more than 30 people and provide meal service for residents for approximately 3 months each as a transition from homelessness to more stable accommodation. For many people, Bakhita provides a safe and friendly environment to get re-established. The Bakhita Centre provides residents with safe and welcoming home. Safe social interaction helps residents to develop a sense of self respect, belonging and purpose For more information:
