Our Lady of Graces Catholic Parish Carina
Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Graces Catholic Parish, Carina. I hope you find our website useful, with answers to any questions you may have. Please feel free to ring the parish office if there is anything further we may be able to do for you.

Since its very beginning, just over 50 years ago, Our Lady of Graces has been a Dominican parish, staffed by a community of Dominican friars. We belong to one of the older religious orders in the Church, founded by St Dominic in the early years of the 13th century. Dominic wanted to help people towards a deeper relationship with God through a better understanding of what God has revealed to us about himself and about what God has made possible for us.

Whether you are already one of our parishioners or not, we would welcome any ideas about how we could improve this website. If you are considering joining our parish community, we ask you to fill in the folder for new parishioners at the back of the church, and we will do our best to make you feel  ‘at home.’

Community News    (a snippet from our latest newsletter)

The wait is over and we are now happy to announce that our new Parish Priest, Fr Alex Vickers O.P., has arrived.

There is a very busy time in every parish which starts before Palm Sunday and extends right through to Easter Sunday. It's a time of planning, seeking assistance, people stepping up, communicating and helping out. It's about ordering things, and getting things in order so that, as a community centered in Christ, we may remember and celebrate well His Passion and Resurrection. The visible and invisible, planned and in some cases unplanned actions of many people make this busy time very manageable for those tasked to organise liturgies. The work of those who pruned and hung their palms so we could bear them, those who rehearsed music and readings so we could hear and enter into the story, those who climbed ladders to decorate, and turned lights on and off, those who ministered Communion, coordinated Masses, projected images, carried and venerated crosses, and took up collections. The list could go on. The parish thanks all who stepped up over Holy Week and Easter for being ours arms and legs of ministry. Thanks also to every person who attended Masses and liturgies, and made up the community of Easter people who share and celebrate the hope of the Resurrection.
