Welcome to All Hallows Parish, Five Dock

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Do you know any ADULTS who would like to become Catholic, or any ADULT who would like to be received into the Catholic Church or to be fully initiated into the Catholic Church?  

  • An adult who has never been baptized. 
  • An adult who was baptized in another ‘Christian church’ and wants to become Catholic. 
  • A baptized Catholic (adult) who has not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation. 

Anyone 16 years and over is welcome to prepare for the reception of the sacraments of initiation – Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil (8th April 2023).  

The course will commence in October 2022.  For enquiries, please contact the parish office on 02 9713 7960.

Note: Any Parishioners interested in joining the RCIA team are welcome, please contact either one of the priests or the parish office.  


Catechists Needed!

Become a Catechist or Helper in public schools

All Hallows urgently need more helpers for classes at Abbotsford, Five Dock and Russell Lea Primary Schools. Lessons are half an hour. Please consider our needs for these classes. 

Half of Catholic children in Sydney are in public primary and high schools. Share the hope and joy that Jesus brings with them and become a catechist or helper. Starting off as a helper, you’ll receive easy step-by-step lessons and hand out activity books in primary schools.

Find out more about the work catechists do here, whether at primary or secondary level: https://ccd.sydneycatholic.org/ 

“Being a catechist is the most spiritually fulfilling thing I’ve done”- Rose. 

Please speak with Fr Sebastian / Fr Richard or contact the parish office on 02 9713 7960 if you are interested in volunteering.

“Get to Confession” resource for renewing and restoring parish life

During these past two years, our collective experience as One Body of God has been challenged by difficulties brought on by the pandemic, which have affected our parish life, our worship, and our relationships with one another – even with Our Lord.

To help restore these, the Sydney Centre for Evangelisation decided to find creative ways to bring people back to Church and back to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. One of these initiatives was to restore the faithful of our Archdiocese through the Sacrament of Confession. Thus, the Sydney Centre for Evangelisation has produced this ‘Get to Confession’ resource for you to view as we begin our Lenten journey to Easter. You can view this resource here: “Get to Confession”
