18th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Sacrament of First Holy Communion

The preparation begins today for the children in our Parish who will receive their First Holy Communion later this year. There are 58 children who will be receiving the Eucharist for the first time.

We sincerely thank those who are helping the children prepare for this wonderful day. These include the teachers who will teach the lessons each Sunday morning and those who are supporting them. A special mention to Sister Helen who has prepared all the materials that will be needed including the photocopying of the Children’s booklet and also the booklet for parents.

I know that everyone in the Parish will be praying for the children and their families as we celebrate this important day.

Sacrament of Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated in the Parish this year on Sunday 19 September at the 5pm Mass. Enrolment forms are in the foyers of each Church and will be available at the office in Sacred Heart and St John’s College’s. You are invited to complete the enrolment form and return it to the Parish Office by Monday 2 August.

Those eligible to receive the sacrament of Confirmation are:

 any student in Year 11 or above who has been baptized Catholic;

 adults who have been baptized but who have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation.

There will be a preparation programme for the sacrament and information on this will be available after enrolments close in August.

This sacrament is an important step of the initiation process into full communion with the Church. It is an opportunity for people to make their own free choice of entering more fully into the life of Christ through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Holy Hour

‘Be still and Know that I am God’ (Psalm 46:10)

You are invited to come and spend some time with Christ in Eucharistic adoration. This is held fortnightly at St Patrick’s Church on a Friday evening from 5.30pm until 6.30pm.

The next Holy Hour will be this coming Friday 6 August at 5.30pm.
