We, the Catholic Parish of Bacchus Marsh are on a journey; working together, worshipping God, and creating a sense of belonging.

In a Spirit of service, we share, celebrate, and strive to create a place of communion and reconciliation.

We are respectful to our traditions; open and welcoming to people's different ideas and beliefs.

God is alive in our Parish.

Our Parish serves the communities of Bacchus Marsh, Maddingley, Darley, Coimadai, Parwan, Balliang, Balliang East, Rowsley, Myrniong, Korobeit and Greendale.

Acknowledgement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians who have walked upon and cared for this land for thousands of years. 
We acknowledge the continued deep spiritual attachment and relationship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to this country and commit ourselves to the ongoing journey of Reconciliation.
