Our Parish

Our Parish embraces the communities of Mildura, Irymple and Werrimull

Our Parish Vision
“Our Parish is a Eucharistic Community united by our faith in Jesus Christ.
We work together in the power of the Holy Spirit to spread the good news of God’s Kingdom.”

There is a lot happening in our parish and a lot of parishioners are doing very useful things. We hope that this website will bring you up to date on some of the parish groups, their varied activities and their contact persons.

Our parish is essentially people. We of the Parish Pastoral Team see a major task of ours as helping you appreciate your own unique importance and special giftedness, and feel an ever-greater sense of belonging. We would love you all to become involved in the faith life of the parish and to take ownership for its vitality and effectiveness.

We are living in rapidly changing times. Our lives can so easily become overburdened; our available time so scarce. We all need the opportunity to step back from life and to bring our lives into perspective. What are we here for? What do we really value? Our faith provides the needed direction; but we need the support of each other to find the necessary freedom to shape our lives in line with our chosen priorities.

You are most welcome to take part in any of the listed parish groups and activities, or to suggest new ways that we can help each other. Feel free to contact the leaders, or make yourself known to the Parish Pastoral Team.

A detailed history of our Parish can be read here.
