Prayer for Parish

Christ Jesus,

You who love us and deepen in us the knowledge of Your name and Your love, open all doors and make known the way of salvation, You call us to take time and to be with You in prayer, to draw close to You and to seek Your Will.

You desire to purify our hearts and to lead us to repentance draw us together as a community and help us to open our hearts to appreciate the gift of each other.

Bless our Parish Community and all those we love. May your grace lead us to a new Pentecost in our lives to go and proclaim the Good News to all and a deeper desire to live the mission of the Church.


Dear Parishioners, please keep the first Reconciliation children and their families in your prayers. We would like to thank our PREP Coordinator and Catechists, St Lawrence Primary School teachers and all the parents for their dedication in preparing the children for that important sacrament of God's love and mercy.

Parish Team

There will be a special blessing for fathers at all Masses this weekend in honour of Father's Day. All fathers will be presented with a small token of appreciation.

God our Father

bless all the fathers in the world.

Guide them to be good role models

and loving to all their children.

Help them to be a father like you are.

Give them graces of your Spirit and patience

to handle situations in a loving way.

Grant this through Christ our Lord.
