welcome

The Catholic Parishes of Kerang, Cohuna and Pyramid Hill are parishes with great sense of community. The parishioners have worked hard to build parishes that prioritise the need of the people to help foster their love for God.

 

We, as one community welcomes you to be happy and be of service towards the need of others. All together as one, we journey as followers of Christ.
