Welcome to our website....
Let it be both an entrée into our community and an ongoing source of information about how we try to live out our vision which is “To Follow The Example Of Jesus By Serving Others.” – I hope you accept that that’s a goal and not a boast about where we are now!
I want to give you a bit more of a welcome than this so, if you’d like more… click here.

STAMPS FOR MARIST MISSIONS:
We have forwarded another $160 to the Marist Missions this week, bringing our total so far this year to $480. Please keep the stamps coming – they have been very good the last few weeks. Thank you to all of our regular stamp savers. You enable Father Ron Nissen to help educate some of the poor in nearby Asian countries by his “Bridge Program”, which will give them a chance at a better life, and possibly keep them ‘off the streets’. Saving stamps saves lives ! God Bless you all.

NATIONAL PRAYER CAMPAIGN FOR DROUGHT
The Catholic Bishops of Australia have announced a National Prayer Campaign for Drought to take place during November. People across the country are encouraged to pray for the gift of rain, for people affected by the drought and to provide practical support, where possible. The Bishops note that large parts of the country are directly affected by the drought, but the impact is national – and so should the response be national.
