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)

On Saturday the 10th of December we will be having our pre-Christmas working bee. This is the time we do all the maintenance tasks ahead of our Christmas celebrations. It will start around 8.30am/9am. If you have time to pop on by and help out it would be greatly appreciated.

On Sunday the 11th of December, we will be celebrating Fr Tom's 50th year of Ordination. You are invited to a special Mass at 9am followed by a light morning tea and refreshments. We will be joined by Bishop Joseph Oudeman to celebrate this special occasion.

The parish youth group will be conducting a multi-draw raffle to raise $3,000 for 10 young parishioners to attend the 2017 Ignite Youth Leadership Camp. Ignite Summer Camp has been running for a number of years and it is clear from the experience of young people who have attended previously that they return more confident in themselves, their self-worth and the value they can add to our society. Tickets are $5 and will be sold from after Mass each weekend or the Parish Office during the week until 18th December. We would like to thank the businesses who have kindly donated prizes and will be acknowledging them over the coming weeks. If you would like to help by selling tickets or if you have any prize donations, please contact the Parish Office.

Please note: Any person who has bought a BLUE TICKET numbers 6, 7, 8, 9 and numbers from 12 to 24, please contact the Parish Office ASAP so that we can have your details as they were not written down on the ticket stubs.

We are thankful for the continual support of the local Lions Club for the donation of Lions Christmas cakes/puddings. These make the hampers extra special!!! We would be grateful for any extra food donations over the months of November and December for our Christmas hampers. Suggested food for hampers include - breakfast cereal, long life milk, long life custard, canned fruit / vegetables, pasta/pasta sauce, Christmas treats, biscuits maybe even presents to make the Christmas extra special. Please leave items under the Christmas tree in the church. If you would like to make a donation of perishable food items e.g. fresh fruit please contact Barbara on 0438982140. Thank you, SVDP Carina
