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.’

CARINA CATHOLIC YOUTH The Wildside – years 6 - 12
Are you in high school and looking for something to do on a Friday night? Well, if you answered YES, then let us introduce you to our youth group The Wildside! The Wildside is run on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month. If you are looking for a night of epic games and challenges, prayer, reflection, inspiring speakers, music, a free BBQ dinner and so much more, then come along, bring your friends, and join us for a night of awesome! Check out the Wildside Youth Winter Calendar on the notice board outside for all the events that are happening this School Term.

The parish social justice group has obtained a copy of the awarding winning documentary film “Chasing Asylum” and would like to invite members of the parish community to a Film Night on Friday 25 August 2017 commencing at 6:30pm in the Parish Library. A warn cup of soup will be served from 6:30pm followed by the film commencing at approximately 7pm. Chasing Asylum explores the impact of Australia’s off-shore detention policies and explores the mental, physical and fiscal consequences of these policies. For all us interested in social justice this is a film that needs to be seen. To assist us with catering for the evening an attendance sheet will be placed at the back of the Church and we ask those intending to attend to add their name to this attendance sheet. Admission will be by a gold coin donation.

Safeguarding is an essential part of volunteering in certain ministries in the Parish and it is of paramount importance that the volunteers who are obligated to go, attend this session in order to make sure that we are compliant according to the Archdiocese. The session is also open to anyone who wishes to attend of their own accord. The next session will be Saturday 26th August 2017 – 9am to 12pm.

On Friday 27 October 2017, the Carina Catholic Youth with Our Lady of Graces Parish will be hosting our Inaugural Black and White Gala. Ticket prices vary depending on age and family packages available. Tickets are now on sale to book your tickets click this link https://www.trybooking.com/QOCW . If you do not have access to internet, you can pay in cash to the Parish Office. All tickets includes plenty of canapes (drinks not included but are very reasonably priced).
