Welcome to the Dunedin Hill Suburbs Pastoral Area Website

The Hill Suburb Pastoral Area was formed in 2006 by the Dunedin Catholic Diocese and combines the parishes of St Francis Xavier Mornington, St Mary's Kaikorai and St Joseph's Brockville.

Please take the time to browse our website for further information about our pastoral area.
