Saint Bridget’s parish is a Catholic community living a Christian life of faith, worship and service, in and within, the suburbs surrounding Balwyn North.
The parish has a strong tradition of community, originating in the simple act of building a hall, school and church/presbytery and so forging its Greythorn identity. From early days, our parish has maintained a strong St Vincent De Paul conference and in more recent times, an active Refugee Action Group has also been established. We continue to be a modest but proud community of faith that celebrates in a Church environment adapted to the contemporary liturgy, with ample amenities for meeting and sharing life together.
The parish primary school, Saint Bridget’s, is an important part of our mission to evangelise. The religious education needs of Catholic students attending local Government schools are met by a group of catechists who teach in small groups in preparation for the Sacraments.
The Greythorn Catholic population and the parish is challenged, as are parishes throughout the Archdiocese, to become stronger centres for mission and outreach in the local area. We have identified a stronger vision, celebrated in Eucharist and leadership as key elements for growth in the future.
