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)

The Reflection – 33rd Sunday. By Sr P Stevenson RSJ. We have reached the second last Sunday of the church’s year, and as you would expect the readings are about endings, outcomes and transitions. Jesus call us to work for the healing of the world, but such work is dangerous. To challenge the narrow-mindlessness of the community is like poking a stick in a wasp’s nest. Call religious people to give up their shallow legalistic view of God, and you will incur their wrath. Ask politicians and public servants to be accountable and there will be evasiveness. Even among our own families, divisions will occur. The pictures of destruction are not comfortable, but they are not always negative. Jesus said “Don not be afraid” Fear paralyses. The Gospel is Good news. Faith is placing all endings as well as all beginnings in the heart of a God of Love.
