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.
Tony Ryan – Hope gives us energy
Climate change is for real; millions of refugees are displaced; at least 10% of the world’s population is still chronically undernourished. And yet… we desperately need hope for our future. With Hope, we will have the spirit and energy to do something about those issues.
10 Year Anniversary
This year we celebrated 10 years since our leaving of the old St Marys Church. Ten years ago we walked from the Church with lanterns in hand and sadness in our hearts to the TLC Building. For 10 years we have proudly forged a new way of being a Faith Community bringing hope to many.
Women in the Catholic Church
Those calling for reform within the church say recent events have paved the way to expand the role of women in Catholicism. Some believe that includes female priests. All will be considered when bishops and other representatives from across the country meet to discuss the future of the church in 2020.
Jo Inkpin – We Are One
Jo Inkpin, Australia's first transgender priest, explores how theology from the margins brings the Bible alive in liberating ways. She invites us to see and explore in the Bible the extraordinary diversity and dynamic of goodness in creation, the central call to justice and infinite compassion for all.
