We are proudly one of the most culturally diverse and vibrant Catholic Communities within the Diocese of Parramatta, located in the heart of Sydney and Mt Druitt.
Established 1st June 1965, under the leadership of Fr Patrick Archbold (1965-1977), the parish now comprises of at least 800 regular parishioners, a number of services, agencies, ethnic communities, and various ministries to help meet the needs of the local community.
On-site, we have the Catholic Church and Parish Office, a Pre-School and Primary School, the Ignite Food Store & Co-op Shop (Jesuit Social Services), St Vincent De Paul Hub, Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation, Aboriginal Catholic Services (Catholic Care Social Services), The Shed, and a Pscyhologist.
The parish runs various programs for individuals, families and communities. Some of these include: Church services, Sacramental preparations, Family Holiday Programs, counselling and welfare services, to name a few. This account brushes lightly over many of these activities and cannot mention all that is done in particular communities within the parish, notable the Tongan, Samoan, Filipino, and Aboriginal communities.
