The Scalabrinians arrived in Australia in 1952 to provide pastoral care to people in territorial parishes. The congregation now meets the needs of the country’s Italian, Spanish, Filipino, and Portuguese-speaking migrant communities, among others. Currently, the Scalabrinians run 9 multicultural parishes in Brisbane, Dee Why, Lalor, Liverpool, Mascot, Mt. Pritchard, North Fitzroy, Seaton, and Wollongong, and 10 ethnic chaplaincies in Brisbane, Dee Why, Mascot, Mt. Pritchard, North Fitzroy, Lalor, and Seaton. In addition, the Scalabrinians have opened seven houses for elderly migrants in Allambie Heights, Austral, Bexley, Chipping North, Drummoyne, Griggith, and South Morang.
