Welcome to St. Joseph’s Parish

At St. Joseph’s we long to be …

  • a community of people with Christ present among us,
  • inclusive of all people and all cultures,
  • open to give of our talents and wisdom,
  • ready to grow in understanding of our faith,
  • prepared to help the poor, the alienated and the struggling,
  • and willing to celebrate Christ’s presence in our worship and our life.

St. Joseph’s is a child-safe parish. At St. Joseph’s we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children, young people and the vulnerable as a central and fundamental responsibility of our parish.

We acknowledge that we meet on the traditional land of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people and offer our respects to the elders past, present and future. We recognise and respect the cultural heritage of this land.

JoCare is a free service supported by St Joseph’s Malvern and Cabrini Health. The vision of JoCare is directed to encouraging friendship and support within neighbourhoods in the local Malvern area. Residents in the Malvern area are welcome as volunteers or recipients of the services offered by JoCare.

It is expected that volunteers or recipients will come from a wide cross-section of our local community. Some will undertake JoCare service as an expression of their Christian faith in action. Others see their service to their neighbour as a means of connecting with others and as fulfilling their desire to build community. Read more …
