Welcome

Welcome to the Brighton parishes of St James and St Joan of Arc. St James was the original parish in the Bayside area and reached to the Peninsula. In 1920 St Joan of Arc was declared a separate parish. The community is looking forward to the celebration of the centenary in 2021.

If we look back at what the Spirit has achieved through the people of Brighton in over 130 years we see a remarkable story. This can give us inspiration to enter into God’s creative work among us. Let us open ourselves to that same Spirit at work among us today.

Please join us as we progress to being the Light of Christ in this part of the world.

Future Direction

The parishes of St James and St Joan of Arc are now part of the new Bayside Catholic Mission.  Fr David Cartwright and Fr Dean Mathieson are the Parish Priests for the Bayside Catholic Mission which also includes the parishes of St Mary’s Hampton, Sacred Heart Sandringham, Stella Maris in Beaumaris and St Josephs in Black Rock. 

For more information on the Bayside Catholic Mission please view the website at www.baysidecatholicmission.org

Impact Of The Pandemic

As the pandemic restrictions begin to ease we have introduced a new Mass timetable for the Bayside Catholic Mission. 

Mass will be streamed from Stella Maris Church in Beaumaris at 10.30am each Sunday. 

There are now two Masses each Sunday at St Joan of Arc at 11am and 5.30pm.  Bookings must be made using the TryBooking link included in the weekly bulletin.

Please check the weekly bulletin for the latest news regarding services and contact the parish office to enquire about baptisms, weddings and funerals. We are very sorry for the stress and difficulties associated with these changes. 

For all enquiries please email the parish office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone 9593 1703.

Please be assured of our prayers for you and your family during these challenging times.
