Welcome to the Catholic Parish of St Anthony of Padua Austral

Welcome to the Catholic Community of St Anthony of Padua, Austral. Thank you for visiting our site.

I welcome all new parishioners to our community, as you make your home in the area and this community as your worshipping community.

I am the Parish Priest and if I can assist you in the preparation of the Sacraments or in any other way I invite you to contact me either by phone or email.

There are various drop-downs that explain the celebration of the Sacraments and I invite you to look at the information provided on the Sacraments and when they are celebrated in the Church.

Regarding the Sacrament of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation and when they are held, this information is given at the weekend Masses at the appropriate time.

Baptisms, Marriages and Funerals are organised by an appointment and I invite you to ring Cheryl, the Parish Secretary, to organise an appointment time.

Sydney Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese has opened a new College in the parish which will cater for Pre-School to Year 12 when completed. Click in the “College Banner” for more information or ring the school for details, 9606 8600.

The Parish Church is situated on the corner of Edmondson Avenue and Eleventh Avenue Austral.

The Presbytery and Parish Office are at 320 Edmondson Avenue Austral 2179.

I hope you will join us for fellowship and weekend Eucharist.

Fr Robert Hayes PP RFD
