The Hawthorn Catholic Parish strives to be a Christian Community focused on Jesus, helping all celebrate God’s presence and expressing our faith through outreach, service and justice.
We express our vision through prayerful liturgies, welcoming hospitality, ministering to young families, the youth, the elderly and the homeless and refugees in our area. Our parish groups are centered on those needs of our community.

The Field Hospital
Special series - Ignatian First Spiritual Exercises week 1 The Field Hospital - Fr Michael Hansen SJ
Fr Hansen SJ introduces 'The Field Hospital' - Pope Francis offered this image, 'I see the church as a field hospital after battle. The thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful.'
It seemed like a good idea to try and do this amid the COVID-19 virus world we find ourselves in. So we have created a Field Hospital of hospital departments and Ignatian spiritual exercises for those who, in lock down, illness or serving the sick, need critical help and healing now.
