Jesus has asked all of us to go and tell the Good News, to spread the Gospel.  If you know anyone who has expressed an interest in learning more about our faith and has been considering joining the Catholic Church, this spiritual journey may be the right time for him or her. 

Those who are interested in learning more can contact the parish office on 9632 2872 and a member of the R.C.I.A. team will contact them.

There is also an introductory pamphlet about the R.C.I.A.  available from the parish office that can be given to any prospective candidate.

Children's Liturgy 
able2assist
St Patrick's Children's Liturgy is held on the first and third Sunday of every month and children attend lessons in the Parish Office during the 10:00am Mass, where the day's Gospel is explained to them at their level.  Often a short activity accompanies the Gospel.  

To ensure our Children's Liturgy runs smoothly for the children we require helpers to join our team.  Helpers will be required to assist once a month at the 10:00am Mass, either to help prepare the lesson and lead the children or just to assist with the supervision of the children during the lesson and the movement to and from the Parish Office.  

If you are interested in joining our roster please ring the Parish Office and ask for Kathy's contact details.  No experience is required.  All helpers wil be required  to undergo Child Protection Screening.

REFLECTIONS ON THE SACRAMENTS


The purpose of the sacraments is to sanctify, to build up the body of Christ, and finally, to give worship to God.

 

The sacraments not only presuppose faith, but by words and objects they also nourish, strengthen and express it; that is why they are called "sacraments of faith."

 

The sacraments impart grace, but, in addition, the very act of celebrating them disposes the faithful most effectively to receive this grace in a fruitful manner, to worship God duly, and to practice charity.
