Nambucca Valley Parish Churches

In 1998 the Nambucca Valley Parish merged its four Churches. Christ the King in Taylors Arm, Corpus Christi in Bowraville, Our Lady Star of the Sea in Nambucca Heads and St Patrick’s in Macksville became a single Parish within the Lismore Diocese which runs from Tweed Heads out west to Kyogle and down to Port Macquarie-Camden Haven.

Within our parish are two Catholic Primary Schools—St Mary’s at Bowraville (approx 50 students) and St Patrick’s at Macksville (approx 300 students).

The Parish comes together in our Church hall, located next door to OLSS Church in Nambucca Heads, two to three times a year for luncheons. There is also a good opportunity to meet with parishioners after the 8am Mass at Macksville on the second Sunday of each month.
