Welcome to the Parish of St Charles Borromeo

Built in 1913, Mary Immaculate Church is the mother-church of the Franciscan Friars in Australia and Parish church for Saint Charles Borromeo. The Church is a popular wedding venue enhanced by the fine acoustics and the historic paintings of the Seven Joys of Mary (Franciscan Crown). 

Waverley Parish is a sign of God’s love for all people. We welcome and care for all as a community which embraces the Gospel of Jesus in the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi.

We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we stand. We walk on a land once occupied by the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. May we continue to love and respect the land as they have.
