A Catholic priest and two religious brothers are expected to appear in a Sydney court to face child sex charges laid in New Zealand.

St John of God priest Raymond Garchow, 56, and Brothers William Lebler, 82, and Rodger Maloney, 68, are facing a total of 61 sexual assault charges against their former students, dating back almost 50 years.

The allegations relate to when the trio worked at Marylands, a school for boys with learning and intellectual disabilities, in Christchurch, New Zealand.
