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!

“St Mary’s Parish is not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifice of many”.
One of the character traits that has marked us as a church has been the incredible volunteer spirit of the many people who make up OUR Parish church.
Volunteering is a brilliant way to build great friendships whilst also practically helping build the church and making weekend services amazing for all who come and attend.

We would love to have more people to set up for Mass, altar society, proof reading, counting and lawns. If you have not been personally approached but would love to participate, please give us a call so we can include you in the new rosters. which we will be prepared shortly .  

Call or email us in the office if you can and would like to help.

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!

Originally, there was a request from members of the Parish for greater accessibility to the sanctuary area.
