About Our Parish

Our Parish family

On 24 May 2015, we celebrated the birth of our new Parish of St Charles Borromeo and Our Lady Queen of Peace Ryde-Gladesville.

It was also the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, Patron of Australia. It begins a new chapter in the sacred story of St Charles Borromeo and Our Lady Queen of Peace communities, which cease to be separate and individual parishes. The futures of our communities are now intimately linked as in a marriage.


Our clergy

Here at Ryde-Gladesville, we are supported by clergy from the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity.

Fr Greg Morgan our Parish Priest, Fr Alfredo Serrano, Fr Daniele Sollazzo, Fr Dan Drum and Fr Steve Drum, our Assistant Priests, support our parish.

Our Parish Prayer


Lord, through your Holy Spirit, may our parish of St Charles Borromeo and Our Lady Queen of Peace continue to celebrate our faith in Jesus Christ and strengthen our relationship with each other through word and sacrament.

Help us to grow as a community,

recognizing each one’s journey as unique and sacred,

and in communion with the whole church, may we reach out to others,

especially those most in need.

Please grant us your grace to be true to this mission as we continue on our journey together.


Amen.
