Parish Mission Statement
Our Parish seeks to live as a family – supporting one another, open to all comers, and building a community where each person feels wanted and cared for. To make this happen, we will work to grow in holiness through prayer and service and we will try to show God’s love in our daily lives. Ceremonies are available on the parish webcam.

There will be a practice for this Mass each Thursday from 4.00 pm to 5 pm in the Church, beginning Thursday the 29th of September 2022.

The Season of Creation began on 1 September, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. This is the annual Christian celebration to listen and respond together to the cry of Creation. It is dear to Pope Francis’ heart. This year many Christian communities will unite around the theme, “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” There will be a Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on each Friday in September beginning Friday 2nd from 7 pm – 8 pm. Please come along and join with the Parish Environmental Group to place before the Lord our concerns and worries for the world and all the creatures that inhabit it.
