Ministries are the life-blood of the John Baptist Parish. By participating in one or more ministries within the Parish the parishioners take on a role of responsibility and service using their special talents to promote our community and celebrations as well as the good order and growth of our Parish.

The outline of ministries within the Parish is intended:

  • To express appreciation to our many involved parishioners who contribute generously of their time and creativity to enable our parish to be welcoming, caring and to have a sense of belonging.
  • To continue to form community at our Parish of John the Baptist, we invite parishioners to consider joining a particular ministry complete a Parish Ministries Registration and return it to the Parish Office or contact the Parish Office 9823 2572 for further information.


Ministries are involved in all facets of the Parish life, ranging from Liturgical, Faith DevelopmentCommunity Building & Outreach, Administration, Service & Communications together with Prayer Groups and Social Justice.

The Parish also has a Bereavement Group which assists people who have lost someone dear to them whether it has been recently or a while ago, to help them cope with their loss. The group meets every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm in the Parish Centre. This group will be fairly informal but we will have resources to guide them through.
