                                  Land of the Taungurung

 

Mansfield Catholic Parish is situated in the High Country in Victoria including parts of the Victorian Alps. The Parish was established in 1862 when Melbourne was a Diocese and Sydney was the Archdiocese. The Parish is part of the Archdiocese of Melbourne and is bordered by parishes of the Sandhurst and Sale Dioceses. The Mansfield Catholic Parish churches are: St Francis Xavier (Mansfield), St John's (Woods Point), St John the Baptist (Jamieson), St Patrick's (Bonnie Doon), St Joseph's (Tolmie) and Our Lady of the Snow (the Alpine Chapel) on Mount Buller.

We acknowledge the Taungurung people as the traditional owners of the land. We pay respect to the Taungurung Elders, past, present and future and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Catholic Parish of Mansfield, Archdiocese of Melbourne is committed to the safety, well-being and dignity of all children and vulnerable adults.
