A Word from our Parish Priest

We welcome all parishioners, visitors, and pilgrims to Our Lady’s Parish, Craigieburn & Roxburgh.

Our Faith in Christ Jesus, is one that encourages us not only to live in communion with our God, but also in communion with one another, supporting and assisting each other as we continue to grow and deepen our love of God and neighbour.

Our Lady’s Church is a beacon of faith in our local community and beyond, where Christ is the centre of our liturgical and parish life. Our treasure is the people, and our gem is in our diversity of cultures that come together. We are all on a journey to God and through the liturgy of the Eucharist daily and particularly on weekends; we get an opportunity to join others in our worship of our Living God.

We hope you had the opportunity to worship and participate in our ministries already, but if not we warmly invite you to become part of this great parish.

With Christ’s blessings,

Fr. Varghese Kurisingal

Our Lady's Parish - Craigieburn and Roxburgh Park
