We are a supportive, engaging and faith filled community that exist to know, love and serve Jesus.

We are a vibrant Catholic parish in the Northern Illawarra area. Our experience of worship, especially our Sunday Eucharist, is the high point of life in our community where we celebrate and praise God for his presence in our lives. We hope that you will make our parish your home, a place where you can find purpose and belonging and grow in your relationship with Jesus and one another.
