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)

All are invited to be part of Advent Awakenings: Take the Time from RENEW International. Small groups will gather to learn, pray, and share on the true meaning of Advent. Please join us once a week for four weeks to remember in community what we are anticipating during this season, and connect with others as we journey in faith. For further information, contact Lisa at St Thomas’ Parish Camp Hill:stthomas@bne.catholic.net.au or 3398 1154.

The Cathedral of St Stephen Advent Fair will be held on Sunday 3rd December, 8am – 2pm (between the 8am, 10am and 12noon Masses). This is the annual fundraising by the St Stephen’s Cathedral Choir. It is coinciding with the COSSAG’s (Cathedral of St Stephen Art Group) Christmas Market. There will be homemade cakes, sweets and savouries, multicultural cuisine, sausage sizzle, guides and welcomers’ tours.


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).
