Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
St. Declan’s Parish is a welcoming,
supportive and inclusive community of believers
inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus
who gather around the Eucharistic table.
We are called to spread the Gospel
through word and action
and are seeking to reflect Jesus’ compassion
with our local community and beyond.

Installation and Welcoming Parish Meal
Fr Chris will be installed as our sixth Parish Priest by Bishop Terry Brady during the 11am Mass on Sunday 22 April followed by a multicultural celebration in Fernlands Hall. Thank you to the generosity of many parishioners who will be providing a variety of wonderful food to share. This meal will also include a BBQ and drinks.
The parish community congratulates Fr Chris on his installation as parish priest. May his vocation, and that of his fellow brothers, Fr Isuru and Fr Adam, continue to be filled with many blessings.
Under the guidance of our MGL priests, may we continue to serve one another with love, joy, care and compassion.
