Parish Vision and Mission statement

As disciples of Jesus, that our parish of Doreen, Kinglake, Mernda and Whittlesea be a welcoming, vibrant, faith-filled and worshipping catholic community. In a spirit of joy and compassion we will reach out to all in the service of the Good News of God’s love and in our stewardship of our created world.

 Community - Proclamation - Outreach - Worship.

The Cross

The central symbol of our Christian faith. The ultimate revelation of the Good News of God's Love for Humanity

The 'C'

A symbolic representation of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, after whom our parish is named.

The Three Figures

They represent the richness and diversity of the members of our parish community - 'For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.'(Mt 18:20)

The Rays of Light

Coming from Christ they radiate through the members of the parish who, as missionary disciples, are reaching out with joy and compassion bringing the Light of Christ to the world.


Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion,Reconciliation, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life:1 they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.
