Congratulations to the 44 children who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Wednesday. Please continue to keep them and their families in your prayers as they continue to experience the gift of the Holy Spirit. Also a special thanks to the Sacramental Team – Kelli, Donna, Justine & Fr Ejikeme who guided and supported the children through the program.
Thank You most sincerely from the SVDP Good Shepherd Conference to everyone who generously donated items, came and supported the book and plant sale, helped set up and gave of their time over the 3 day event. Unfortunately, the inclement weather let us down but due to the wonderful support of people braving the rain, a little over $4300 was raised. These funds will go a long way in allowing us to continue assisting those experiencing hardship as well as trying to cope with the high cost of living. Your ongoing support is always greatly appreciated. Thank you again and well done everyone.

Calling all Altar Servers
Each year, we offer altar server training – usually just for junior ministers. This year, however, we are opening up the opportunity for both current and prospective junior ministers, and also those adults who already serve, or would like to serve the altar. This training opportunity will be fun and interactive as we look at the practicalities of a very important ministry. If you or your child/grandchild would like to be part of this opportunity, please call/email the parish office with your details. Once we’ve compiled the list, we’ll decide on a suitable day/time that’s most convenient. Tasty food and refreshments will be supplied!
