Our Parish


The Catholic Parish of Epping and Carlingford is part of the Diocese of Broken Bay. It embraces the former parishes of Epping originally established in 1916 with the Church of Our Lady Help of Christians as its Parish Church, and Carlingford originally established in 1962 with the Church of St Gerard Majella as its Parish Church.

Welcome to the parish!

Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Epping and Carlingford. We hope that whichever of our two communities, Our Lady Help of Christians or St Gerard Majella, you have moved into, your new community will be able to help and support you in your own journey of faith.

The other parts of the website contain plenty of information on our two communities and we hope that you will be able to find an area in which you would like to be involved.

To begin your membership of the parish community please download a New Parishioner Form by clicking on the link below:

New Parishioner Form: Download Here (PDF 1.6MB)

Please return the form, either by:

  • Returning to the Parish Office at Epping.
  • Dropping it into the after-hours letter slot. At Epping this is on the door to the verandah of the old school building immediately adjacent to the Church and, at Carlingford, on the door of the Parish Meeting Room.
  • Scan and email to the Parish Office as a pdf file.
If you are unable to print the document you can collect one at the rear of each of our two Churches.

If you, or a member of your family, is not currently a member of the Catholic Church and you would like to know more about becoming a Catholic, please visit the section on ‘Sacraments’ and scroll to the section in ‘Adults who wish to become members of the Catholic Church’

Once again, welcome to the parish and we hope that you will be able to become involved in the life of your new community.
