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.

Break Open The Word for 2020 has been ordered and will be available for collection from next weekend. Cost is $18.

MASS SONGS MUSIC PRACTICE
If you would like to join parishioners who practice current and new mass songs, please join us at the church on Saturday 26th October at 10 am for approx. one hour. You do not need to read music and will not be asked to sing solo at mass. This is a relaxed practice so people feel more confident when singing songs during mass, especially at the 7am mass where there is often no cantor.
You are most welcome to just turn up on the day, but it helps us to have enough copies of the songs if you let me know in advance. Please leave a message with Gwen: 0431 234 443.
PLENARY COUNCIL 2020
The Plenary Council of the Australian Church How God is calling us to be Christ-centred Church that is ... HUMBLE, HEALING AND MERCIFUL. Come along for this exciting chance to influence the direction of our Church in Australia with your own prayer and reflective contributions.” TWO OPPORTUNITIES FOR THIS MONTH: Wednesday 23rd October 7pm OR Sunday 27th October 10am (both in the meeting room). The other themes will be reflected on each month on the 4th Sunday and Wednesday at the same times mentioned above. This will be for six months all together with a break for December and January.
How is God calling us to be a Christ-centred Church that is In-clusive, Participatory & Synodal?
This National Theme for Discernment is inspired by the voices of the People of God who expressed a desire for individuals and groups within and also beyond the Church to find a better welcome and be incorporated more into her life and mission. There was a call to renew forms of governance and leadership in the Church, to find ways formally and informally of being co-responsible for ministry and mission, seeking structures and processes of collaboration, shared decision-making and financial co-responsibility in order to enable this greater involvement of lay people particularly of women, young people, people of diverse cultural backgrounds and people with disabilities. There was an expressed need for stronger connections across the many parts of the Church, and with other Christian traditions.
