"From whatever direction one approaches Geelong, the most outstanding landmark is the Church of St Mary of the Angels with its slender spires pointing towards the heavens."
The journey of St Mary of the Angels Basilica, Geelong, began on 27 November 1842. It is a Catholic place of worship with its vibrant community participating in regular Sunday and weekday Masses.
Normally the Basilica doors remain open to the public during the day for personal prayer, reflection, to find peace in a moment and feel the presence of God around them. However, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, times of access to the Basilica are restricted. Please see the website homepage and Parish Bulletin for the latest updates.
The Parish of St Mary of the Angels acknowledges the Waddawurrung people, the Traditional Owners who have walked upon and cared for this land for thousands of years. We acknowledge the continued deep spiritual attachment and relationship Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to this country and commit ourselves to the ongoing journey of reconciliation.
We acknowledge and pay our respects to their local elders past, present and emerging, and to all Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders.
