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.’

Community News    (a snippet from our latest newsletter)


Each Friday during Lent a small group of Sacramental mums and friends have been meeting for Lenten prayer discussion. In our first meeting we raised the three pillars of Lent (prayer, fasting and almsgiving), and how to make them real. The idea of a dignity basket – an offering of personal and hygiene items for women in refuge or crisis situations emergency– was raised. We have commenced a small collection.

Though we are to care for the poor every day of our Christian lives, on Holy Thursday this profoundly Christian calling is emphasized by the collection for the poor, which is part of the Mass. So items for this Dignity Basket, collected throughout Lent, will be donated to the Romero Centre. If you would like to donate, drop items into the office or the purple basket at the church entrance.

On Easter Sunday the Carina Catholic Youth will be holding an Easter Egg Hunt for young children. We are seeking donations of bags of easter eggs, if you have any that you would like to donate, could you please bring them to the Parish Office. Thank you in advance.

The Legion of Mary are currently seeking new members to join. We meet in the Parish Library every Thursday night at 7pm. There are a number works undertaken by the Legion such as: door to door visitation (visiting members of the community Catholic or non-Catholic and giving them a Parish bulletin), visit the elderly and sick, attend funerals and on occasion assist Fr Maurice at Prescare Vela. If you think that this is somethig you are interested in, please contact the Parish Office.
