Welcome to the parishes of St Joseph Edgecliff & St Francis of Assisi Paddington

We need Angels, Shepherds and Sheep for our Nativity Play! If you would like your children to be involved please contact the Parish Office for more information!


We are a welcoming, inclusive, community-based congregation that seeks to reflect the charism of St Francis and St Clare. All are welcome to come and celebrate in the Franciscan tradition. Please come and join us for mass at St Francis (Paddington), St Joseph (Edgecliff) or for the Double Bay Community mass (Uniting Church Chapel, Corner of Cross St and Transvaal Ave, Double Bay).

We have many active groups including our catechist, sacramental and RCIA programs and community outreach through our commitment to working and volunteering for Cana, Canice’s Kitchen and St Vincent de Paul. If you would like to learn more about our Parish Groups and the work we do more information is available on our site or by contacting the Parish Office.
