St Monica’s Catholic Parish is home to the local Catholic faith community in North Parramatta, as well as the Chinese Chaplaincy of the Parramatta Diocese.

Our mission is to build up an active parish community with the Eucharist as the centre, foster deeper prayer and spirituality and reach out as a witnessing community.

Our community is centred around our faith in God

The motto in our logo – “In te Deus corda nostra” is Latin for “In you O Lord our hearts”. We believe that God loves us so much, that He comes to us in the Eucharist in Mass. We deepen our relationship with God in prayer and worship, and live out our faith through our actions and reaching out to others.

We worship together as a faith community

Celebrating mass together is central to our faith community. Sunday masses are held four times over the weekend, and we also celebrate daily mass from Tuesday to Friday. Read more about Attending Mass >

Our witnessing community includes a range of ministries for people of different interests and talents, such as the St Vincent de Paul group, readers for liturgy, and the social activities group. We also have groups catered for people at different stages in life, such as our youth group for young people aged 13 years and over. Read more about our Ministries >

We have a vibrant community at St Monica’s, with events throughout the year to bring the community together to celebrate, such as fetes, dinners, cultural celebrations, and Bingo nights. See our latest news and events >
