Welcome to St Joachim Parish, Lidcombe, a parish considered as an oasis of prayer in the inner-west part of Sydney. Be on Fire in prayer. It’s the only parish in the entire archdiocese of Sydney and the surroundings in NSW which has the 24/7 Hours Adoration Chapel - Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel ( PEA, as popularly called). Lots of people have heard about this adoration chapel and tons of people have been coming over to Lidcombe to visit the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. It’s simply an amazing thing that happened in our parish! You can attest to this when you ask some Catholic faithful about adoration chapel which is open 24/7
We have established a new design for our website, and for sure you will notice some changes when you browse our web. We have added new photos and other events in the parish. We will be constantly updating this web, and Facebook page! And for those who are willing and happy to donate online, there’s a section where can do this ( much more this weekend that our Parish Priest will be doing or running in the City 2 Surf in the Sydney - from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach). We have been longing for many years now to start and complete our long-standing project: refurbishing our church pews, making it looks brand new. Please donate online! You will be happy to sit and pray in the church where you have contributed much for the satisfaction of everyone. The people/parishioners before we have taken care of this church for us, let us then be good stewards so that the generation that will follow us will benefit from our good stewardship.
Our Facebook page is also being updated and monitored. You will see and know new things in our parish through this page aside from our parish bulletins and weekly announcements.
So, once again welcome to our webpage and Facebook page. Please let us know of any matters so we improve our web and reach out to the wider community.
Fr. Eduardo de Pedro Orilla
