"Helping Hands"

We now have a list of people who have made themselves available to do odd jobs (replacing tap washers, light bulbs, etc) as well as driving, cooking.....
So, if these types of jobs get beyond you due to illness, age or any family difficulty, please just pick up the phone and call the Parish Office on 5441 1034.


Would you like to gather a group of people to share a meal and prayer? Several families do it already.
This is a simple way of sharing our faith and supporting one another in it.
It also helps us to be aware of our baptismal vocation to share the Gospel.
