Christmas Family Mass

Neither COVID nor the hot weather could keep families away from attending our Christmas Eve 6pm family Mass.
We started with some Carol singing led by a small choir of enthuastic young people under the guidance of Kathy and Stephen, followed by the Nativity Play which was well rehearsed and beautifully presented by the littler members of our Parish with the choir singing inbetween the narrative.
Fr Francis then processed in at the beginning of Mass with a little babe in his arms (Gianna) who was our little baby Jesus.


 

 

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
