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)

With this first parish newsletter since the Christmas break comes a chance to offer sincere thanks to all in the parish for providing welcoming and ministry at our very busy Christmas Masses. They are busy times, with much to be done, especially around the 5.30pm Mass which also involved change of venue. Thanks to everyone for your participation – from those involved in the intricacies of planning, organising and rehearsing through all ministries and extending to the regulars who turned up and provided welcome to guests and "less regular" parishioners. We have talked much in recent years about welcoming; Christmas [and Easter] are prime opportunities for the parish to show its welcome.

On the weekend of 28th and 29th of January, we will be holding the Little Kings Movement for the handicapped. All proceeds will go to those who are handicapped to help them live a life as normal as possible. There will be envelopes in the pews. Please place all donations in the brown box at the back of the Church.

Pope Francis has declared that this year will be the year of the Youth. We have two dedicated Youth Coordinators, Michelle Jory and James Keogh, who organise and run these youth events. You can see them at 5.30pm Mass on Sunday the 5th of February and ask them questions. For more information about the youth groups see below:
