Volunteers Thanksgiving Mass and Dinner

This year the Parish held a Thanksgiving Mass and Dinner for all the regular Volunteers of our Church!
Around 100 dedicated voluteers accepted their invitation and attended this Friday night event at the end of last month.
The Dinner which followed the Thanksgiving Mass was catered by Michael and Mary Tan and was a great success with abundant scrumptious food enjoyed by all!
A small way of showing appreciation for all the dedicated committment to the parishioners of our wonderful Parish!


PREP Christmas Windup 2019

Another great year for our Parish Religious Education Program!
We finished the year with our Advent lessons and preparation for our Nativity Play.
For our Windup party, the children presented the beautiful Christmas Nativity story which was accompanied by some new Christmas Carols which the children had to learn in only 3 short rehearsals and did a splendid job in singing and acting out this great story of Jesus' birth!
It was also a sad occasion where we had to say farewell to our 2 long serving Catechists, Elizabeth Merrifield and Annette Russo who were retiring after many years sharing their faith and knowledge with the childen of our Parish! They were each presented with a gift from Fr Francis on behalf of the Parish. We shall miss you!

New Altar Servers 2019

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 who were commissioned on Sunday the 27th of October at the 10am Mass.
Congratulations to Owen, Simon, Isaac, Christian, Sebastian and Aidan.
We pray that all our new Altar Servers as they begin their liturgical ministry in our Parish, will be abundantly blessed in this very special ministry!
