Generous Father, you constantly shower us with your abundant graces. Grant, we pray, that our Lenten sacrifices, prayers and reflection, will help us to better recognise the graces of this season.

May we share what you have given us with those less fortunate. And, help us Father, to walk confidently on our path, leading us closer to you, as we prepare to welcome your son, our risen Saviour this Easter.  AMEN.

We are happy you are here to view our website, you will find information about the Parish and activities.

Faith comes from hearing but here in our site, what you see, read and reflect on we hope will get you thinking and actively participating in our mission and vision.

May your visit to this site translate into blessing and hunger for doing the will of God.

Lots of love and blessings.
