Deepening our Faith
Every member of our Diocese of Parramatta is invited to be a part of the twenty-first century mission of Christ in our region, to be an active disciple in our future of faith. The Gospel calls us to live the full gift and promise of our baptismal discipleship, to look for opportunities to grow in our faith, our understanding and response to the Gospel, and to actively evangelise, drawing others to the faith and to God.
Looking for a Faith Oasis?
Our homes, parishes, schools and other faith communities and groups are our key ways of deepening our faith. Approach your local parish, school leadership or other faith community in your area for help in deepening your faith journey with Jesus Christ and others.
