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.’

Parents of children yet to complete the Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation or Eucharist) are invited to a Parent Meeting at 7pm on the evening of Tuesday 7th March. It is critical that parents of children intending to enrol in 2017 attend. Those enrolling are generally turning 8 in 2017, or older.

In a slight change this year, we encourage all parents of young baptised Catholic children (regardless of age) to attend. This is a great opportunity for you to understand more fully the recent changes to Brisbane's Sacramental policy. Sr Kari Hatherell from the Archdiocese of Brisbane will offer useful information to help parents understand the policy and discern what is right for their child and family.


Parish 500 Card Group will be on Friday 3rd of March at 7.30pm in the Aquinas Room. New members are very welcome. Contact Josephine 33982411.
