Fr Richard's Message:

1st Sunday of Advent (Yr C)

 

 

Friday 26th November 2021

My dear people,

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. How quickly this has come this year! The start of Advent brings with it thoughts of Christmas break ups, Christmas shopping and Christmas preparations. I would advise you to pace yourselves with all of this as we start preparing for the celebration of the birth of Our Lord.  [Read more]


You are all warmly invited to the St Catherine of Siena Carols by Candlelight Evening on the 19th of December at 5:30pm. There will be a Jumping Castle, Sausage Sizzle, Coffee/Tea, Face Painting and Carol Singing from some of our very own talented musicians! 

Please make your booking to attend the event via Try Booking or contact the Parish Office for more details. It's been a tough year so join with us as we anticipate the birth of our Saviour! All are welcome!

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR BUSINESSES

We invite businesses to come and setup stalls during our Parish Christmas Carols on Sunday 19 December. Businesses can either promote or sell their products.

If you are a business owner or if you know anyone with a business and would be interested in taking up this offer, please ask them to call the parish at 8361 9822 during office hours for more details and information.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Pastoral Letter from Fr Richard Rosse, Parish Priest

Monday 4th October 2021

My dear people,

I pray that you are well during these unprecedented and challenging of times. The purpose of this letter is to share with you some exciting news for our parish community.

Proposed New Church and Facilities

As you may have realised, our parish is growing rapidly in terms of new residential development in our area which in turn has led to many people moving into the parish. The current western boundary of the parish extends to Plumpton Road and you would have noticed how quickly new estates are coming up between the church and Plumpton Road.
