OLSH Parish participates in the Mission of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
1. By doing all we possibly can to make Jesus Christ known and loved by all in Central Australia.
2. By our Parish commitment to Justice for all citizens of Central Australia, especially for the Arrernte people.
3. By striving with our brothers and sisters of other Christian traditions and other religions in Central Australia for a unity of purpose and action.
The different and varied communities of OLSH Parish form a deep bond or covenant of love. This bond originates in the celebration of the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist. The bond is further strengthened through the mutual support and ongoing formation in our Catholic faith offered to each community and each parishioner. Finally this deep bond gives the Parish the courage and energy required to carry out its mission.
