Welcome to the online presence of the Catholic Parish of Forster Tuncurry, where you can find information about who we are and what we’re up to.
Situated to the north of Newcastle, NSW, the Parish sits astride the Great Lakes, and is part of the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.
The Parish acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which it is located, the Worimi people, and pays respect to their elders, past and present.
Our Mission Statement: To be an affectionate, caring, loving, faith-filled, Christian community, growing as one through small groups.

Scam Warning: The Parish and Fr Greg will not request gift cards or vouchers in support of any charity or person in need. Scammers are utilising resources linked to the Parish and our public advertising mediums. The parish and Fr Greg have a significant and identifiable email address linked to the Catholic Church and neither operates a Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo account. If you receive any correspondence from emails with these address ‘tails’ they should be questioned before responding. Requests for assistance from these platforms should be ignored under all circumstances.
The ATO and Telstra do not request accounts to be paid with gift cards. Telstra does not make contact with you unrequested to fix problems with your computer. It is always best to make a call by first accessing the phone number from the whitepages or your bills/mail should you be concerned about issues or debts and making a call to them yourself: it is not the best option to ask the unsolicited caller for the number. Scammers are clever!
