The Catholic Parish of the Holy Family has existed in Mount Waverley for over 60 years and has been a constant reminder to the people of Mount Waverley of the loving presence of Christ in the World.

Our Faith in Christ Jesus is one that encourages us not only to live in communion with our God but also in communion with one another, supporting and assisting each other as we continue to grow and deepen our love of God and neighbour. At Holy Family, you will find a community of faithful followers of Christ, who are striving each and every day to live out their Catholic faith in their homes, workplaces and in their local community.

As members of the Catholic Faith, we profess our belief in our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave all mankind the Church, as the means to follow him in this life, and rejoice with him in the next.

Leadership Team
Fr Justel Callos
Parish Administrator

Most of you will come to know me through my role as one of the Parish Secretaries here at Holy Family. I moved to Australia with my family over 20 years ago and have come to greatly appreciate the beauty Melbourne has to offer. I am a graduate of Campion College where I received a Bachelor of Liberal Arts, majoring in literature. Apart from my work within the parish community, I am a mom to a precocious little boy and pursue my creative passions through my small business of floristry and art. I look forward to meeting more of the parish’s members and am keen to see how Holy Family will continue to grow and develop.

Mariana Hladik
Parish Secretary

I am excited to be a new member of the Parish leadership team this year. As a teacher and the Religious Education Leader of Holy Family primary school I look forward to be working to build connections between the school and the parish. I have just completed my Masters Degree in Religious Education at the Australian Catholic University.
