A prayer for you during the week

A new prayer at the beginning of each week

Feast of Pentecost

Almighty and everliving God,
who fulfilled the promises of Easter
by sending us your Holy Spirit
and opening to every race and nation
the way of life eternal,
keep us in the unity of your Spirit,
that every tongue may tell of your glory;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Noon Day Prayers on 'Zoom' every Wednesday

Every Wednesday, mid-week and mid-day at noon, a group gathers virtually on Zoom for a few moments of prayer - about 15 minutes

  • This time of prayer sets a few moments aside during the routine of the week
  • It is simple and contemplative with moments of silence
  • Anyone who wishes to join on Zoom is welcome
  • It is also available on our Facebook Page

Every Wednesday at 12 Noon

15 minutes of quiet, reflection, and prayer

Caring for our local community and beyond

About 30 per cent of our annual budget is given in service to others. Here are some of the projects and initiatives that are our focus in 2024

Being the Church is about community

Sharing our blessings: All proceeds from parish events are directed to ministry and to community outreach projects for those in need locally and beyond

Thanks for checking out the BBQ. You're also warmly invited any Sunday 10 am. 
Blessings to you.
