The Most Reverend Anthony Fisher OP has been Archbishop of Sydney since 2014.
Bishop Anthony grew up in Sydney and studied History and Law at USYD before practising law in a city firm. In 1985 he entered the religious congregation of the Dominicans and since then has filled a number of roles including Chaplain to the Parliament of Victoria; member of the Infertility Treatment Authority of Victoria; Co-ordinator of World Youth Day 2008 in Sydney, and chair or member of several hospital ethics committees. He has also published extensively in bioethics and moral theology.
In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Bishop Anthony the third Bishop of Parramatta; and in 2015, after he had become Archbishop of Sydney, the Vatican announced his appointment to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the body responsible for promulgating and defending Catholic doctrine.
