FROM THE PARISH PRIEST
Our parish community is truly a family, made one in Jesus Christ, with a united, heartfelt vision of His kingdom. Across all of our communities we seek to cherish, cultivate, and celebrate the many and varied ways that God desires to touch and transform the lives of people. Our common call as followers of Jesus is to encourage, equip, and empower others to live as Disciples of Christ.
Our parish is greatly blessed to have many parishioners who live this daily and wish to support others on this journey of faith. Our numerous parish volunteers assist with parish life, whether it be by involvement in the preparation and running of the liturgical and devotional life of the church or with the many areas of outreach into the wider community.
The commitment of the unique energy, gifts, and talents of so many people in our parish community makes our parish come alive. Whatever you may be seeking, and however you may be able to encounter and serve the Lord in this place, I encourage you all to come along, get to know one another, meet Christ regularly in our eucharistic celebrations, commit to becoming involved, and join us as we journey together to bring others to Christ!
This website is one of many ways that we try to reach out to the community, and we welcome your feedback on how we can improve it and make it more useful to you.
God Bless, Fr. Jason Middleton, Parish Priest

CURRENT TOPICAL LINKS
The First General Assembly of the Fifth Plenary Council of Australia ran from October 3-10, 2021. It is a focal point for the Church in Australia as a journey that has its origins two decades ago, commences the nine-month period of celebration, with the Second General Assembly scheduled for July 2022.
In March 2020, Pope Francis announced that the theme for the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops would be “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission”. The Synod on Synodality is a two-year process of listening and dialogue beginning with a solemn opening in Rome on October 9 and 10, 2021. The synodal process will conclude in 2023. Pope Francis invites the entire Church to reflect on a theme that is decisive for its life and mission: “It is precisely this path of synodality which God expects of the Church of the third millennium.”
Until 27 February 2022, all Catholics are invited to have their say about their experiences of ‘synodality’ – of walking together as a Church. All submissions received nationally will help the Australian Bishops develop a report to support the global process leading to an international gathering in 2023. This is not to be confused with the Australian Plenary Council which is running concurrently with the Synod. The Plenary Council focus is on the Church in Australia. The Synod is focused on the Church globally.
Your voice matters, and it could be as simple as getting together with family, friends or fellow parishioners and having a “Coffee Conversation”. This short video offers encouragement on how easy it can be to have your say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrgZ-N79Kf0
