Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Parish Concord
Our parish, in the suburb of Concord, is part of the Archdiocese of Sydney, Australia.
St Mary's Parish is situated on Parramatta Road at Concord and includes parts of the inner-western suburbs of Concord, Burwood, Strathfield, North Strathfield and Canada Bay.
The parish is mostly residential with some medium and high density housing in Burwood and Strathfield and in new housing developments on Canada Bay and Exile Bay (Parramatta River).
St Mary's Parish was founded in 1870 although a church and school had been established on the Parramatta Road site in 1845.
Our Vision is to make Christ present in our parish, in our local community and in our world.
Our Mission is to know Christ and to make him known; to be a community committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments, and our active concern for social justice.
