Mater Dei Parish, Blakehurst


Parish Priest: Fr Isidore Anantharaj

Our Parish

Mater Dei is located north of the Georges River in the St George Deanery of the Archdiocese of Sydney. Everyone is welcome to join the parish family. If you are new to the parish, please make yourself known. Morning teas are generally held on the third Sunday of the month during the school terms after the 10:00 am Mass in the Michael Kennedy Hall.

The school is also directly involved in supporting those in need in our local community, including visits to the local Nursing Home, fundraising and supporting our local chapter of St Vincent de Paul.

Mater Dei Parish provides sacramental programs and celebrations for Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation for children who attend schools other than Mater Dei Catholic Primary School.

There are orientation evenings for parents where the Parish Priest, in partnership with the school, leads parents to a greater knowledge of the Catholic faith in order to help them bring Christ's message and love to their children.

Each year a Welcome to New Kindergartens' Mass is held to welcome new families into the parish and school community.
