Vision statement

We are an inclusive Church built on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people. We are committed to social justice and diversity. Our mission is Catholic evangelism: "Growing in God's Love".

Growing in God’s love

As the body of Christ, we seek to grow in God’s love. We do this by evangelism and worship.

We share the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ through the beauty of holiness, the Sacred Tradition of our apostolic faith, including an active engagement with Scripture, and by acting for justice in the wider community.

Eucharistic worship, or the Mass, is the cornerstone of our worship. We believe that in the Mass Christ is received, the memory of his Passion is renewed and our community is filled with grace.

Our Tradition calls us to:

  • worship God in and through the sacraments

  • engage with Sacred Scripture in the liturgical and devotional life of the church

  • bring reason and intellect to a living faith

  • build a loving and inclusive community

  • serve others through social action.

Our commitment as Christians

As Christians we are called to love God and our neighbour as ourselves. Thus, we commit to:

  • serve the wider Church as a place of ministry training and Christian formation;

  • minister to all peoples

  • embrace the gifts of all within our parish community

  • involve ourselves in the life of our City

  • speak out about significant issues, including social justice and the environment

  • acknowledge the historical and continuing relationship of Aboriginal peoples to the land on which our Church is built, to the Diocese of Melbourne and to Australia as a whole

  • honour our historic responsibility to witness to an inclusive catholic faith in the Diocese and the wider church.
