Enjoy the warmth and
great hospitality at

St Kilian's is an Earthcare Parish.

St Kilian's Parish Community is responding to Catholic Earthcare Australia, which is a program of Caritas Australia that responds to the ‘cry of the earth’ to safeguard creation and provide a voice for victims of environmental injustice.

The parish responds to the call of Laudato si’, the environmental encyclical in which Pope Francis invited Catholics all around the world to reflect, pray and take action to protect our common home.

In response, the parish has created a community garden where we can practice looking after our Mother Earth. Join the Community Garden Team every Wednesday morning at 10am-12nn.


Weddings at Australia's Largest Wooden Church

Marriage is a basic way of giving and growing in love and together attaining salvation. We are not meant to live in isolation, but to find and fulfil ourselves through the love of others. (Gen 2:18, 21-25). The marriage covenant, through which a man and a woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love, is ordered to the good of the couple as well as to the generation and education of children.  

The Church regards the sacrament of matrimony as signifying the union of Christ and the Church. The sacrament gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love which Christ has loved the Church. The sacrament of matrimony perfects the human love of spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.
