Message from Parish Priest: Fr Nicholas Perera
See Fr Nick's Farewell Thanksgiving Prayer under the heading Parish News and Reports.
Welcome! to our website and to our Catholic Parish of Innaloo-Karrinyup, serving the Archdiocese of Perth, Western Australia.
We have two Catholic primary schools situated just next to the church buildings where we celebrate both school masses and parish masses; Our Lady of Good Counsel in Karrinyup and St. Dominic’s in Innaloo.
We are a vibrant worshipping Community uniting in Faith, proclaiming the mighty acts of God and trying to live by His word, while catering to the various aspects of human needs, namely Spiritual, Social, Intellectual and material.
I, as the Parish Priest would like to make an open invitation to any willing persons to join our worshipping community, and attend services in either or both of our churches, at the same time making themselves available to voluntarily take part in the ministries offered and engage themselves in any other parish activity.
Our parish holds a good number of social events each year, International lunches when people bring and share authentic dishes of the countries of their origin, St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, and Melbourne cup lunch, to name a few.
Our annual Sacramental programs for the school children and our monthly family masses in both of our churches, have been very successful over the past years. With the support and guidance of the school staffs, each class of both of our schools have been taking turns in preparing some very meaningful Gospel posters at these masses, which are truly commendable. A “Big Thank You” to all parents who have been bringing their children to these family masses.
So, dear brother, dear sister, if this website of our eventful Parish attracts you, you are most welcome to be a part of our community.
May the abundant blessing of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit be with you, always!
Fr. Nicholas Perera
