A Welcoming Community

We are proud of the variety of people who make up the church that we know. St Canice’s extends its welcome to all, without judgment – to the lonely people of the street and to the comfortable middle class, to the transvestites and the fashionistas, to the public figures and the unknown, to the hungry and the well fed, to the devout and the doubtful.

In the spirit of Ignatius

St Canice’s is a parish but it is not parochial. One of the benefits that we receive from the Jesuits is an opportunity to participate in the work of Jesuit Missions and the Jesuit Refugee Service. Whether it is the hunger of the people of East Africa, or the plight of refugees in the camps of Thailand or Villawood, we offer our prayers and practical assistance thankful for the benefits of living in a free and peaceful country.
