Welcome to Our Parish

We are a welcoming community. We strive towards building a family of God in the parish. We would love to have you as a member of our parish. We grow together to know our faith better and build up our friendship with our Lord Jesus Christ and devotion to Mother Mary by the inspiration and intercession of St. Padre Pio, our parochial patron.

We are located in the western Sydney of the Diocese of Parramatta and we are the first parish to have St. Padre Pio as the patron of our Parish.

May your visit to our parish website be an enriching experience and if you would like to become a member of our parish, please contact us and we are more than happy to assist you. You are most welcome to attend one of the Masses to meet us.

May God bless you always.
