God Live In Us!

Welcome to St Mary's Parish website!

St Mary's Echuca is a vibrant community.

Family....Caring......Support.....Community.......Fellowship......Love of God ......are all words that we believe describe our Parish community well.

We are part of the Diocese of Sandhurst and we always like to welcome newcomers and visitors. If you want to worship with us, or if you are new to the Echuca area, please come along and you will be made VERY WELCOME.

There are many Parish Groups within our Parish Community covering numerous activities and programs for people of all ages and interests.........there is sure to be something that appeals to you!

This website is a work in progress and gives you an overview of our Parish. We hope you find it helpful and can be patient as we slowly develop into an accurate source of information and the opportunity for us all to interact in our wonderful, spiritual, caring and loving Community.

The website is an introduction but the best way to become a part of the Parish is to come along to Mass and introduce yourself..... we look forward to meeting you!

   SOS    

  SMSOS PROJECT 

The Social Justice Committee has identified a need for a bank of people to be available for one off /short term or occasional support for parishioners. For instance, someone in recovery from surgery who is unable to drive - a grocery pickup; a new mum who after a caesarian, can't hang washing on the line; an elderly person needing a lift to hospital for day surgery. 

We are hoping to compile a sms list of volunteers. Then we could send out the 'SOS' message in the hope that someone may be able to assist.

It is not long term but of great support when people are most in need.

 

 If you would like to be on such a list ............

call or message Christine on 0411 627645

or leave a message at the Parish Office.
