Welcome to Our Lady of the Pines Parish, Donvale
 
We share our happiness with each other and it becomes greater
We share our troubles with each other and they become smaller
We share one another’s griefs and burdens and their weight becomes possible to bear
 
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 Area, looking out the windows, you will be surrounded by trees and enjoy the sounds of many birds.
 
One of our strengths is our strong sense of community which, is demonstrated every Sunday when many of our parishioners stay back after Mass for a cuppa and a chat, forming and maintaining firm friendships.  Whilst the adults chat, the children happily play together. 
 
So, whether you are a regular, a part-timer or new to the area, you are very welcome and we look forward to seeing you at Our Lady of the Pines.
 
God bless you all,
Fr Jerald
 
Youth Group Recycling Program
Last year,  as one of its commitments to serve the community, our Youth Group signed up for an oral care Recycling Program with the recycling company, TerraCycle.
 
Unfortunately collection was halted due to the pandemic, however the program has now commenced and we would be most appreciative if parishioners could help this recycling drive by bringing along their oral care product packaging to place in the collection boxes which will be located in the church foyer from next week.
