St Pius X Mission was founded in 1965 by the Roman Catholic Church and the Daughters of Charity. It was set up in an effort to make a Preschool and Medical Service more available to the Aboriginal Community of Moree. In 1984, in line with the Catholic Church’s belief in self-management, an Aboriginal Management Committee was elected.
In 1987, the centre’s name was changed to Pius X Aboriginal Corporation when official control was handed to the Aboriginal Management Committee by the Diocese of Armidale. Since then services and facilities have been expanded and improved to meet the needs of the Aboriginal Community. This includes the opening of the Dental Unit on the 6th February 1989.
Pius X Aboriginal Corporation strives to be a welcoming, community focused organisation delivering culturally appropriate services and programs aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of the Aboriginal Community.
Our goal is to provide the highest standard of client care while incorporating a holistic approach toward diagnosis and management of illness. We are committed to promoting health, well-being and disease prevention to all clients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all clients with dignity and respect.
