Parish Religious Education Program

For our Advent Parish Religious Education Program this year, we had 3 weeks of Craft Activities making Christmas cards, bead Angels, Christmas wreaths and decorating candles.
We started each lesson with a retelling of the Christmas Story by Mrs Williams who used figurines and props to enhance the Story of Mary and Joseph's Journey to Bethlehem.
We followed these activity weeks with 2 weeks of preparation for our Nativity Play 'Round The Back''.  The children got involved with great enthusiasm, dressing in costumes, memorizing their lines and movements and practising their singing of Christmas Carols.  At the Final week of our PREP class we put on the Nativity play to the parents who stayed and joined in our Christmas windup.


New Altar Servers

It is always exciting to see young people step up in service to the Lord.... there is nothing more precious than serving Our Lord on the Altar.
Recently we welcomed 7 new Altar Servers. 6 were commissioned two Sundays ago on the 22nd of October at the 10am Mass and 1 was commissioned
in front of the whole St Simon Peter School community at their Salvatorian House Mass.
Congratulations to Lauren, Tessa, Aileen, Brigitte, Delvina, Abigail and Phoebe!
We pray that all our new Altar Servers, and their parents, will be abundantly blessed in this very special ministry!

Parish Spring Fair

On the 19th of August our Parish held a Spring Fair with International Foods and Car Boot Stalls.
We were blessed with good weather, had a delicious array of tasty foods and entertained by a toe-tapping band.
This was the success of many months of preparation and hard work of our parish Social committee.
A big thank you to Michael & Mary Tan, Virginia Henriques, Rosemary & Graham Landwehr and their families for their organization, time and efforts with the running of the Parish International Food and Spring Fair.
A big thank you also to the Parishioners who help set-up and pack away on the day and assisted in any way to make the day a great success!
Thank you also to the Youth Ministry for their assistance with the stalls and everyone who attended and supported this great Fundraising Event.

Monique's Farewell

St Simon Peter Parish farewell's our Secretary Monique and wishes her all the best for her new position as Personal Assistant to the the Vicar General, Fr Peter Whitely.
At the 10am Mass on Sunday the 5th of August Monique was presented with a lovely bunch of flowers, Gift card and a big Thank You card signed by parishioners.
After eight and a half years working deligently in the Parish Office, Monique has taken on a new challenge of working in the Archdiocesen Office! We shall miss her!
We also welcome our new Secretary Maryse Galea who has big shoes to fill but has already settled into her role and doing a marvelous job. Please make her feel welcome!


Palm Sunday Procession

Our Parish’s Palm Sunday re-enactment of the Lord’s entrance into Jerusalem, began outside the school grounds. We had 2 ponies available to give the children an opportunity to have a short ride on the ponies before Mass.
This year’s Jesus, altar server Alvaro Blackall rode the pony in our procession led by the children waving palms and singing antiphons.
The children then formed an archway in the church for the Priest, Acolyte and servers to walk through.
This year some lovely ladies made 800 crosses out of palm leaves for our parishioner.
Father Dariusz celebrated the 10am Mass.
