Welcome To Kingsbury Catholic Church

Welcome to Our Lady Of The Way Catholic Church, Kingsbury


We are part of the Diamond Valley Deanery, a group of new parishes who work together on many projects to spread the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Parish is a Eucharistic Community with La Trobe University in our boundaries. Our Parish is a multicultural group of families and students with permanent and rental housing.

Our purpose/mission is to be a stable and prayerful presence in the midst of a busy community and as a gathering space for people to praise God. There are many active groups in the parish and a school as well. We are looking forward to seeing you. Yours truly in Christ.

Fr.Terry Bergin (Parish Priest)

Third Sunday of Advent: Parishioners light third candle, the candle of Joy. Dear Jesus, help us focus on you during this busy season. May we stay aware of the joy you bring into our lives. We want to find you in the everyday moments and come with hearts of gratitude to your manger on Christmas. Amen. Reflection…grateful praise. My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all day long. Psalm 71:18 How often are our mouths filled with praise? It is much easier to fill them with complaints. Any one of us can offer a laundry list of things that are wrong in our life. It can be much harder to find the good. Today, let us make an effort to do just that. Let us thank God for all the blessings in our life. Instead of simply bringing our needs to God, let us also praise him for his goodness and kindness. As we pray for relief from the inevitable aches and pains that accompany us as we age, let us also be grateful for the bountiful years we have enjoyed in this beautiful world that he created. We can also praise God by praising the good in others. At this time of the year, many are tired from all of their holiday or work preparations. A kind word can make all the difference in a persons day. Dear God, help me to always remember to praise you and give you thanks always. I ask this question, who do you know who could use some praise today or maybe during this month of Christmas? May the flame of my prayer rise to heaven, like incense on the wind, and may the angels and all the saints hear my prayer, and circle round in wisdom and joy, Amen.

Vinnies Appeal: How can a hungry child celebrate Christmas? “Little children, let us not love in the word or talk but in deed and truth”. I John 3-18. Supporting the Vinnies Christmas Appeal is one way to show our love with deeds. It is support needed to assist the poor with rent, utilities bills, food, transport, education expenses, prescription medicine etc. Money makes Vinnie’s work possible. There are envelopes for donations in the church foyer. If you require a receipt please fill in your name and address. Please return presents for the kids with the tag from the Christmas tree. Contributions of non-perishable food with long expiry dates should be returned by 15th Dec. We count on your customary generosity to enable Vinnies to ensure everybody has a very Happy Christmas.

Raffle: Our last raffle will be drawn Sunday after 10am mass. Thanks to all who donated items.

Grateful thanks: to Mrs Margaret Barnard for organising our Parish lunches throughout the year. Great success thank you!

Change of address – number only: Our number was previously 13 Green Ave. Courtesy of the Council, we are now 9C Green Ave Kingsbury.
