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.’

You can pick up an application form from the Parish Office. For more information call the Parish on 3398 2977 or Graeme Barwick in the evenings on 5527 0622.

Dear Parish members thank you for your ongoing food / financial donations to St Vincent de Paul. Now that winter may finally be upon us we are seeking your help for the following items:

  • Cans of soup (this is taken to families in need during the winter months with bread donated from the Flour Monkey bakery.
  • New children's winter pyjamas (size 1 to 16)
  • New children's socks (any size)
  • Blankets

We are experiencing a real struggle by local families to keep warm and minimise their electricity costs during winter. We are also seeking the help from Parish members who are a qualified electrician willing to test and tag electrical items (as required) and a parish member who has a Ute and would be willing to help with rubbish removal or moving furniture. Again we would love to have more volunteers to help undertake the variety of activities we do. If you would like to find out more about St Vincent de Paul at the Parish please contact Barbara on 0438982140 or email brdougherty@bigpond.com

In calling for a Jubilee Year of Mercy in 2016, Pope Francis recommended the ancient Christian practice of pilgrimages. Our Parish Pastoral Council has organised a Meditation Pilgrimage for our Parish on Saturday, 9th July.

The program will be as follows:

9.45am we meet at the south side entrance to the cathedral.
10 - 10.30am Sacramental of Reconciliation is available in the cathedral.
10.30-11.30am Meditative visit to five stations in the cathedral and grounds.
11.30am Mass in the cathedral.

There will be more information in the coming weeks.
