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

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.
