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.’

WORKING BEE 16th December
It seems like we only just had a working bee, however as all the leaves have blown off the trees and copious amounts of rain our grounds are needing a good clean up as we head into Christmas. The working be will be on Saturday 16 December starting at 8.30am and finishing around lunch time. If you are interested, please come along and if you have any gardening tools/wheelbarrows etc. please bring them along too. We hope to see you there!

The Wall of Remembrance was established in 1998, to provide Parishioners with a method of having a permanent memorial for their loved ones, in the church grounds. Spaces cost $70 and basic plaques are currently $75 (subject to normal cost increases). You are invited to visit the wall. It can be reached by walking along the path at the side of the church, towards St Martin’s School, and turning left at the rear of the church building. For more information contact the parish secretary on 3398 2977 or Graeme Barwick on 07 5527 0622 (evenings).

ST VINNIES – Christmas Appeal
This Christmas as in the past we have already been packing and delivering many food/toy hampers to our families in need within the local area. This would not have been possible without the wonderful generosity of the San Sisto College, St Martin’s Primary School and the local Lions club which donated cakes/puddings. We are still in need of Christmas food and general food items to help the many in our community who continue to struggle during this happy Season. If you are able to provide non-perishable food items please leave in the baskets at the church entrance. If you would like to make a financial donation the envelopes are available on the pews and front of the Church. The financial donations may be placed on the collection plate or at the Piety shop and receipts will be provided. A newsletter explaining how all the funds spent to date by St Vinnies at Our Lady of Graces Parish for the year and the help provided is available at the back of the Church. If you would like any further information please contact Barbara Dougherty 0438 982 140. As always thank you so much. God Bless.
