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!

St Simon Peter Parish Prayer

St Simon Peter Parish Prayer

Heavenly Father,
you have chosen our parish as the place by which you encounter us in our daily lives.
Here your Word is proclaimed,the Eucharist is celebrated,
and your people are united in a family of believers.
We pray for our parish named in honour of St Simon Peter and placed under his patronage.
Through his intercession may every blessing be poured out on all members of our parish.
We pray for our schools, their staff and students, and all their families.
May our parish be filled with holiness and prayer, with faith and love;
May it be a place where worthy and reverent worship is offered to God,
and where we receive grace and power for our mission.
May all who come here find a welcoming home,
comfort in their needs and strength for their journey of faith.
We make this prayer through Christ, Our Lord.
Amen
