Dear brother, and sister, if your hands seem empty, if you think your heart is poor in love . . . the grace of God has appeared to shine forth in your life.
Pope Francis

Welcome to our Parish

The people of our parish show a great pride in our Churches and parish and we hope to continue the excellent work of our predecessors and the various organisations and committees within the parish.
If you contribute to the life of the parish by attending Mass and other celebrations, give your time and talents as a volunteer in one of the many lay ministries and/or provide financial support. We would like to offer our sincere thanks and encourage you to continue to be part of our parish family as it grows and develops.
