At 7pm on New Year’s Eve, St. Simon Peter Parish Community celebrated with a Thanksgiving Mass, for the year that was. Afterwards, with grateful hearts, parishioners, families, friends, current and past serving Priests, gathered together eager to bring in the New Year of 2015.
Our parish ‘Christmas Nativity Scene’ was prepared by many willing and helpful parishioners.
We used 2 large live Christmas trees for behind the Altar and 4 small artificial ones around the stable.
The live trees and some decorations were purchased from the monies raised by our Christmas Raffle.
Wednesday 19th November was the last day of PREP for this year and we’d like to share with you what the children have been doing.
This year, on the initiative of our Co-Ordinator, Sandy Coelho, we continued PREP classes after the Sacraments were completed.
Together with the Catechists, it was decided that we do things a little differently for the 6 weeks of term 4.
It is always exciting to see young people step up in service to the Lord…and there is nothing more precious than serving Our Lord on the Altar.
On 19 October 2014, our parish was blessed with the commissioning of 10 new Altar Servers: Caitlin Barnard; Daniella Conradie; Marcus da Silva; Jude de Lima; Natasha Friedrich; Gabriella Genovese; Felipe Gutierrez; James Riecken and Ashleigh Westcott.
“We pray that all our new Altar Servers, and their parents, will be abundantly blessed in this very special ministry.”
