Welcome to the Catholic Parish of French's Forest

to our Parish.  It is made up of three vibrant communities located on Sydney's northern beaches.  Each of our special communities is centred on a different church and has its own story to tell. Together, as a parish, we are united in 'Sharing One Faith in Christ’.

We offer many opportunities for personal growth, spiritual enrichment and social interaction.  

This new parish website is a work in progress.  Watch this space as our new Communications Committee works to help us connect with our community in our shared journey as disciples of Jesus Christ. 

If you’re a visitor or new to our parish, we extend a very warm welcome to you. If you have any questions, please chat with me or with Fr Michael, Fr Joy or Deacon Peter, or browse our website.

We want you to feel at home with us. - Fr Jose
