The Holy Family Parish, Northeast Mallee was formed by joining groups of neighbouring parishes that have already been working together and sharing a parish priest. The Northeast Mallee parish covers Swan Hill, Sea Lake and the northern part of Quambatook parish. The formation of this new parish is the fruit of several years of consultation, including the Looking Forward gatherings that have been held since 2014. The detailed proposals for the new parish developed through discussions among priests and parishioners over the past few months and were endorsed by the Council of Priests at their meeting on June 19. Bishop Paul Bird confirmed the formation of the new parish on July 1, 2018.
These new arrangements will make it easier for the local communities to share the tasks involved in pastoral care and parish administration and will give the priests more time for pastoral and sacramental ministry.
