Welcome to St James Forest Lodge & St Bede Pyrmont Parish

The parishes of St James Forest Lodge and St Bede Pyrmont are welcoming, supportive communities of believers inspired by the life of Jesus. We are called to make Christ present in our parishes, in our local community and in our world. These parishes are part of the Archdiocese of Sydney.

Our mission is to know Christ and to make him known; to be communities committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments, and our active concern for social justice.
