Welcome to Murray Bridge Catholic Parish

Our parish is made up of many households ranging from single people to families who are just starting out to those who have called the parish "home" for a number of generations.

We are blessed with a mutlicultural community with families recently arriving from the Philippines and from Zimbabwe, from India and Vietnam. We rejoice in our diversity which represents the faith of Christ lived in all nations and cultures.

On behalf of the Parish Pastoral Team, inlcuding Fr John Vildzius and Mrs Margaret Daly, and the Parish Pastoral Council, I welcome you. Please contact us through email under the Directions tab.

May God bless you and love you!

Father John Herd
Parish Priest
