Welcome to St Michael’s Parish

Under the care of the Congregation of St Michael the Archangel

The parish of St Michael’s is a faith-filled and faithful Catholic community striving to follow in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ under the protection of St Michael and God’s Holy Angels.

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we want to make Christ present in our local community and in the world.

Our parish is part of the St George Deanery and belongs to the Archdiocese of Sydney.

Our Vision

We at St Michael’s are committed to calling each other by name, making Jesus present among us, and being the hands of the body of Christ.

Our Mission

We actively celebrate Liturgy together. We support and care for each other, accepting and valuing diversity. We share the responsibility for the life of the Parish by giving of our time, talent and gifts and being continually open to renewal.

Drive Through Sacrament of Reconciliation for St Michael’s parishioners

Anyone who wants to avail of the Sacrament of Reconciliation can do so between 10 am and 11 am on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week. Fr Janusz will be sitting just inside the covered area by the Corroboree room or outside in the car park. You will stay in your car while availing of the Sacrament.

Please collect the palms which Fr Janusz blessed this weekend from the Church entrance. Be mindful of social distancing rules when you do so. There is more than enough for every family. You may want to hand in your old palms (please put them in the box by the sacristy door) which we shall use for Ash Wednesday 2021 God willing.

We are online!!

In response to the recent social distancing laws, we have been looking for ways to still serve the community. Praise be to Jesus, we are finally online. Please subscribe to our Youtube channel below and click the bell icon to receive all notifications.

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, 
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
