Our Mission Statement

Donore Avenue is an open and inclusive Marist parish which welcomes all people into our church.  In extending this welcome of Christian fellowship, we seek to become a church:

– that is inspired by the gospel values of community and caring;

– that spreads the Word of God while also recognising and respecting other faith traditions; and

– that seeks ways to encourage, develop and nurture right relationships with self, others and God.

We are committed to exploring new opportunities to respectfully encourage all to take an active part in parish life.  We aspire to be a living church witnessing to our spiritual heritage through the centrality of prayer and worship and through a commitment to social justice.

In sum, Donore Avenue seeks to be a parish community where the Christian faith is lived, celebrated, witnessed and passed on by word and by deed.
