A big thank you to everyone who participated in and supported our first Youth Mass. From the Youth band to the readers and to parishioners for the phenomenal attendance we had on the night.
Youth activities and pizza followed in the hall and were well attended by students from yrs 7-12! Thank you to the Youth team who helped facilitate the games and the members of the Youth band who were jamming during the pizza and activities!

Pope Francis has announced a “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” which, he writes, gives us “a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation, raising to God our thanks for the marvellous works that He has entrusted to our care, invoking his help for the protection of creation and his mercy for the sins committed against the world in which we live.” The day will be celebrated on 1 September annually. So, as we head toward spring next Tuesday (1 September), please take a moment to give thanks for new life and the many ways we have been blessed by the gift of our natural environment.
