Bayside Catholic Mission incorporates the communities of St Joan of Arc Brighton, St James Gardenvale, St Mary’s Hampton, Sacred Heart Sandringham, St Joseph's Black Rock and Stella Maris Beaumaris. Fr David Cartwright and Fr Dean Mathieson work together 'in solidum' across these faith communities.
This new way of expressing the mission of the Church in the bayside parishes is a
collaboration between faith communities and clergy. Together, we strive to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of Catholics in the area and to spread of the Good News of Jesus Christ to the people of our neighbourhoods.
In the words of our Archbishop Peter Comensoli, “Our places of faith life and formation, our communities of pastoral outreach and charity – these local neighbourhoods of grace are the truly gospel locations for us today.”
