As we attract many younger families to the parish, we are also an ageing parish. Some parishioners carry the earliest memories of the parish, especially when we first gathered in a nissan hut before the building of the present church. Our history is rich.
Care of the aged and senior parishioners will be a future pastoral priority.
If you would like to be involved in this ministry, visiting elderly parishioners who might not be able to come to Sunday Eucharist, bring Holy Communion to them, or be involved in other activities focussed on our senior parishioners, please let us know by contacting Sally or Mari.

We seek to be involved in the lives of all our young people who live in the parish. We want to make the following words which Pope Francis wrote to the youth of the world, our words:
“Christ is alive! He is our hope, and in a wonderful way he brings youth to our world, and everything he touches becomes young, new, full of life. The very first words, then, that I would like to say to every young Christian are these: Christ is alive and he wants you to be alive! He is in you, he is with you and he never abandons you. However far you may wander, he is always there, the Risen One. He calls you and he waits for you to return to him and start over again. When you feel you are growing old out of sorrow, resentment or fear, doubt or failure, he will always be there to restore your strength and your hope.” (Christus Vivit, 1 and 2)
If you would like to join us in this mission to the young of our parish or become involved in our parish youth group, contact Sally or Mari.

Pope Francis reminds us that the parish cannot be an institution that is static. It must go out the margins, to reach out to those who are in any way in need.
The St Vincent de Paul Society is one dynamic parish organisation that seeks to respond to Pope Francis’ encouragement.

Every celebration of the Eucharist requires the participation of all. We are especially in need of enhancing the numbers of those already involved in reading the Scriptures at our Eucharist or being an extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist.
