Murray Bridge and Mallee Catholic Community

We believe that being community is when everybody, young and old together, support one another to live the healthiest, happiest and most faith filled lives possible.

We are also committed to bringing about 'the world God wants', a world where all families and persons live lives rich in love, peace, hope and care for all.

Through the relationships across the community we bring together the skills and resources to support each person everybody is welcome to join our celebrations.
