The Reconciliation Church and office are situated at Phillip Bay (near La Perouse), at 11 Yarra Road. We do not have a permanent priest attached to this church, however we have a visiting priest each month.
The Church is part of the Parish of St. Andrew’s at Malabar and has been refurbished in the spirit of Aboriginal culture and art.
The Church and office operate three days a week, Monday to Wednesday and besides its role of pastoral care to the local Catholics, we work to involve Aboriginal Catholics in the wider community, national and international events. The work of the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry includes masses, liturgies, sacraments, as well as talks on Aboriginal culture, spirituality, social justice and reconciliation. The work of the ministry also takes staff out of the office to visit many different groups, which include religious, school, ecumenical and multi-cultural.

And the Church herself in Australia will not be fully the Church that Jesus wants her to be until you have made your contribution to her life and until that contribution has been joyfully received by others.
