The journey of St Mary of the Angels Basilica, Geelong, began on November 27, 1842. It is a Catholic place of worship with its vibrant community partaking in regular weekday Masses and Sunday Masses. 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.
"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 Parish of St Mary of the Angels acknowledge the Waddawurrung people, the Traditional Owners of this land 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 elders past, present and emerging, and to all Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders.
