Our Lady of Victories :: Camberwell

              Welcome to the Parish of Our Lady of Victories, Camberwell, and particularly to the beautiful church building for worship. It is one of only five Basilicas in Australia, three of which are in Victoria, one in N.S.W. and one in Western Australia.  Ours is known as the Minor Basilica of Our Lady of Victories.
              This is an exciting year for our parish and for its many friends scattered across the States and Territories of Australia.  The reason for this is found in the Foundation Stone at the front of the Basilica.
THE FOUNDATION STONE bears this inscription:



                                      This foundation Stone was laid by
                                                            His Grace
                                      The Most Reverend T.J. CARR D.D.
                                               Archbishop of Melbourne
                                                         25th May 1913
         A.A. Fritsch F.R.J.V.A.                                    Robert Harper
         Architect                                                           Supervisor & Building


                 To honour with praise and thanksgiving this special Centenary occasion I extend on behalf of our parish community a warm welcome to all our friends to join us on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, 2nd June 2013, at a Concelebrated Mass with Archbishop Denis Hart, Archbishop of Melbourne, in the Basilica, commencing at 2.30pm. Afterwards there will be refreshments for all guests and visitors. Please visit our OLV Centenary page on Facebook, the web address is https://www.facebook.com/olvcentenary 

                 Our parish centre, close to the well known Camberwell Junction is integral to the vibrant activity of the local area.  As you peruse our website I trust and pray that you may deepen your knowledge and love of Jesus Christ, and His Beloved Mother, Mary of Nazareth. May God bless you and your loved ones
