Welcome

Welcome to the Catholic community of Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Parish, Lurnea.

We are a warm welcoming parish, supportive and caring.
Our parish was established in 1965 and is on the South Western border of the Sydney Archdiocese. We have over 5000 parishioners.

The parish contains two primary schools; St Francis Xavier, Lurnea and St Catherine of Siena, Prestons.
Both are excellent schools offering first class education.

We have a vast number of ministries within the parish, to name a few, sfxYouth Youth Group, Care Group, Craft Group and Catechists who strive to bring the Good News to the four surrounding public schools.

St Francis Xavier’s Sacramental Program has a dedicated team who prepare the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Communion and Confirmation.
Parents teach and provide the spiritual knowledge along with the Sacramental team to enrich their children.

Together with the Parish Council, we are making our community an inclusive one, allowing every parishioner to feel included.
