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.’

Sunday Funday Craft Stall
Our Lady of Graces has been kindly invited by St. Martin's Primary School to join in these festivities. Once again, parishioners will be manning the Craft and Jam-cum-Chutney-cum-Pickles Stall. The funds raised from a similar stall two years ago contributed to lighting the statues of Our Lady and St. Martin at the front of the Church. This was very favourably received by our Parish community. Our team is asking for your support in the way of contributions of any of the above. We have some groups already preparing items for sale, but would appreciate more, please. Would you kindly leave any donations at the Church Office. Our group meets at 10am each Friday in the Aquinas Room and newcomers are always welcome.

Sunday Funday Cake Stall
We all know there's nothing better than home baked goodies. That's why we're asking parishioners of Our Lady of Graces to make their tried and true, favourite recipe to donate to the St Martin's Sunday Funday Cake Stall. We'd love cakes, biscuits, slices or scones. This year, there will be a dedicated gluten-free section and products containing nuts are welcome as long as they are clearly labelled. Unfortunately, goods including ingredients that need refrigeration (e.g. fresh cream or custard fillings, cheesecakes etc.) cannot be accepted as we do not have the storage facilities.

How and where to deliver your baking:
Simply bring your baking along in your own container to the Dominic Centre on Saturday May 27th between 12pm and 3:30pm. We will then transfer it to the appropriate packaging. We will require an ingredients listing with your baked goods, so please bring this with you as well. Please contact us if you have any questions. Otherwise, HAPPY BAKING and we sincerely thank you for your effort and generosity!! Elena: 0407 764 864/candepower@bigpond.com
