Welcome
 
Welcome to Our Lady of the Pines Parish, Donvale.
 
We are a warm and friendly community located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, nestled in a quiet residential area. When sitting in our Worship Centre, looking out the windows, you will be surrounded by trees and enjoy the sounds of the many birds.
 
One of our strengths is our strong sense of community which is demonstrated every Sunday when many of our parishioners stay back for a cuppa and a chat after Mass, forming and maintaining firm friendships.  The children are given an icy-pole and happily play together.
 
New parishioners are warmly welcomed by members of our ‘Welcoming Committee’ and are encouraged to stay back for a cuppa to get to know other parishioners and feel part of the community. We also hold social functions once a month which are well attended.
 
So, whether you are a regular, a part-timer, new to the area or just got lost on the way to somewhere else – we are thrilled that you are here and you are very welcome.
 
“Love one another, 
as I have loved you”
