Building Hope

On Thursday 14th of July, we held our parish Building Hope gathering to discuss the future of our parish. We want to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers which made it such a successful evening. A special thank you to everyone who gave their time to be there and help us understand what we are doing well, where we have room for improvement and which parishes we should partner with for the future.


Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church from 7 years old above. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens.


Daily Readings Readings

Under our Welcome menu you will find links for the Daily Mass Reading which updates every day as well as Sunday Mass Reading for the following Sunday’s mass. It is a great way to be able to read along during mass if you so wish or take time to reflect on the passages during the week and see what message they have for you. One quick note is that if it is a Sunday and you want to see the Gospel for today then click on the Daily Mass Reading link as the Sunday listing will be for the following week.
