Thank You

A sincere ‘thank you’ to all who attended the blessing and official opening of the Parish Administration and Mission Centre last Sunday. It was a most enjoyable occasion and the weather also played its part. We were able to enjoy a lovely lunch on the grass outside following the blessing. It was so good to see so many former parishioners and friends of the Parish. Many have written this week to say how much they enjoyed the day especially catching up with old friends from former days.

A sincere ‘thank you’ to all the donors who made possible the construction of our new building. The generosity of so many is greatly appreciated. You have created a ‘legacy’ which will serve the mission of the Parish for many years to come.

We have managed to complete the building without incurring any debt. However, we still have many things to purchase to enable the facility to be fully operational. We need appropriate furniture for the Mission Centre and kitchen so that we can fully utilize the space for meetings, presentations, retreats and other Parish and wider community activities.

The Administration area still needs appropriate furniture to safely store office records and supplies. The Archives from all three former parishes need to be co-ordinated into the new building. The fence surrounding the building still needs to be completed.  Our fundraising activities will continue so that these outstanding items can be purchased and the work finally completed. We will only do this as the funds becomes available.

Working Bee

Sincere thanks to all who came last Saturday morning for the working bee. The buildings and grounds were looking at their very best for the opening on Sunday. It was such a great ‘turn out’ and everyone enjoyed getting to know each other over a cup of tea afterwards.


We warmly congratulate Marwin and Lallin Yco on the baptism of their baby Zane Elias Yco at St Mary’s Church yesterday. We assure them of our love and support as we welcome Zane into the Catholic community through the sacrament of baptism.
