NEW CHRISTIANS: We welcome Daisy, Amelia & Hannah recently baptised children into our faith community. As they join our community through the waters of Baptism may they also continue to grow strong in body, mind and spirit in the years ahead.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! In February we will be looking closely at the call to ministry each of us have as a result of our Baptism. Maybe this new year is your time to get actively involved. There’ll be a warm welcome and plenty of work to give you whatever your calling!

It is a simple process that can yield extra funds to support parish initiatives. Contact the parish office for further details. Thank you.

Consider Your Calling

Over the Sundays of February we will be focusing on the importance of ministry within our parish and giving you the opportunity to reflect on and discern what ministry God is calling you to.

This week, we consider your calling and what that means…. read on…

Who Me?

We are all called to be more…
