St Mary’s in Exile is a community of diverse people who come together in the light of the Christian mystery to act justly and give priority to those marginalised in our society
We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land where we are now gathered and recognise that it continues to be sacred to them.
World Environment Day – Liturgy, June 5
World Environment Day on June 5th takes on a fresh appearance in Australia this year in the wake of our recent elections, with many demanding greater action on Climate Change. Our liturgies will remind us that we do that best from a deep love for the earth. Homily by Terry Fitzpatrick. Photo by Syahrin Seth.
Friendship & Suffering – Liturgy, May 29
Friendships end. Life ends. Wars, asylum seekers and tragedies like drought, fires, floods and COVID happen. This creates suffering. What do we do with suffering as we experience it ourselves and in the world around us? Homilist: Michael Tanksy. Photo by Harli Marten.
13 Years In Exile – Liturgy May 1st, 2022
As we have just celebrated 13 years as St Mary's In Exile on the 19th April Terry will be reflecting on the past 13 years. Many of us have belonged to the community for many years in various degrees of familiarity. The need for places where people can be encouraged, inspired, and recharged is ever more needed. Spaces where hope is fostered, based on the reality of situations. St Mary's In Exile aspires to be one such place, Terry hopes we can continue to be this.

We are making a slight change to our online Liturgies. They will be coming out on Mondays instead of Fridays so that we can include a recorded live portion of our previous weekend liturgy. We are now able to gather in person so we will be incorporating that dynamic aspect in our recorded liturgies.
