Welcome to Mary Help of Christians - Altona

If you are new to our Parish, we are delighted to welcome you. We hope that here you will find a sense of community and belonging.

We recognise that being a newcomer can be a little daunting, so we want to make sure that your transition to our Parish is a smooth one. This website gives you introductory information on our parish, its activities and key contacts, but, it might not answer all questions and that is why we are here to help. To this end, please feel free to ask our ushers, greeters and parish staff anything that you might be unsure about. We certainly want to know that you are with us so that we can include you and any family members in our Parish census records.

Please make yourself known!

Plenary Council Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit of Pentecost.

Come, Holy Spirit of the great South Land.

O God, bless and unite all your people in Australia

and guide us on the pilgrim way of the Plenary Council.

Give us the grace to see your face in one another

and to recognise Jesus, our companion on the road.

Give us the courage to tell our stories

and to speak boldly of your truth.

Give us ears to listen humbly to each other

and a discerning heart to hear what you are saying.

Lead your Church into a hope-filled future,

that we may live the joy of the Gospel.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,

bread for the journey from age to age.


Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.

St Mary MacKillop, pray for us

A Lenten Prayer of St Ephrem 

O Lord and master of my life, keep from me the spirit of indifference and discouragement, lust of power and idle chatter.

Instead, grant to me, your servant the spirit of wholeness of being, patience and love.

O Lord and King, grant me the grace to be aware of my sins and not to judge my brothers and sisters. For you are blessed now and for ever and ever.
