We of the community of St Augustine’s Catholic Parish in Balmain extend a warm welcome to those interested in learning about the Catholic faith or who are thinking about joining the Catholic Church.

While the vast majority of Catholics in Australia are what we call ‘cradle Catholics’, a significant number of Catholics have made their way into the Church as adults.  They include many members of other Christian churches, members of non-Christian faiths or religions, and people of no-faith or religious background.  The message is that everyone is welcome to embrace the Catholic faith in the Catholic Church – she is a home for all of humanity bringing us all to a wonderful unity in Christ.

If you would like to know more about the Catholic faith, whether out of simple intellectual curiosity or because you are considering joining the Catholic Church, please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office who will arrange for you to meet with the Parish Priest.
