This is our community, our family, our parish!

We envision our community to be committed to Jesus, our Saviour. This is everyone's journey.

We want you to be part of this journey.

As a family, we will journey with you and together we will discover the joy of being a community of Jesus.



After the Ash Wednesday, we invite parishioners to join this Lenten reflection every Monday, 7pm at the parish hall. Copies are available at the office.

Faith Formation



Sycamore is an informal course about the Christian faith and its relevance for life today. It gives you space to meet other people, share ideas, explore your beliefs, and think about questions that really matter. Each session involves a short film and time for discussion. Everyone is welcome.

...that there may be no discord in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.             1 Corinthians 12:25-27

God loves us – all of us. And, He wants us to recognise that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others.



Every Friday, 6:00PM, after the Holy Hour or by appointment.


“Do not be afraid of Confession! When one is line for Confession, we feel those things which weigh on our hearts; but when one finishes Confession one leaves free, grand, beautiful, forgiven, candid, happy.  - Pope Francis
