                       The family life of our parish:          (Please contact the Parish Office for more information)
    • Family Masses are held periodically throughout the year.
    • Children's Liturgy of the Word encourages our children to enjoy the Word of God in simple language. Held during the first part of Mass on alternate weekends throughout the school term.
    • Our choir is always looking for new members. They sing each Sunday morning at 10.30 am.
    • Morning tea for all parishioners is held in the school hall following the 10.30 am Mass on the first Sunday of each month. Please join us. 
    • Anointing Mass and Care Group Luncheons are held twice yearly. Anyone who would like to receive the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is most welcome, including children. No one is too old or too young! Our school choir sings. School families are asked to contribute food, and mums and dads are asked to help set up, help in the kitchen, or assist with cleaning up, in order to make the luncheon a special event for the elderly of our parish.
    • Care group visitation is available to support sick or elderly parishioners. Volunteers are always welcome to join the Visitation Team. Please let us know if you are aware of anyone who may appreciate a visit, or may benefit by receiving Holy Communion in the home when unable to attend Mass through ill health. 
    • Parish groups include: Over 50s Social groups, Grief and Loss Support Group, the Italian Prayer Group, the Vine and Branches Charismatic Prayer group, the Rosary Group, the Christian Meditation Group, the Gospel and Life Discussion Group, and the Care Group. 
    • Sacramental preparation is available for adults and children who may have missed out on any of the Sacraments, including Baptism. 
    • Adult education is available to anyone who is interested in learning what Catholics believe, or who may wish to become a Catholic. Catholics who wish to refresh their understanding of the Sacraments or of the Catholic Faith in general are also welcome. 
    • The Parish levy that we ask all school families to pay on a yearly basis assists us to provide all of the services above to our parish family and local community. Thank you for your assistance.
