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.

AMEN

Year of Grace

Jesus,
as I contemplate your face,
let me experience your great love for me.

Reveal your saving grace
and give me a grateful heart.

Heal me of my weaknesses and sin
and fill me with compassion
for others.

Gift me with the wisdom of the Spirit
and encourage me to be
a faithful witness to the Gospel.

Marriage

Saturday

Our parish priests will be very happy to officiate your Wedding!
First, please call our office (08 9344 7066) and book the date and time of your Ceremony. Attend the Marriage Preparation Course organised by the Archdiocese of Perth (Newman Siena Centre, 33 Williamstown Road, Doubleview, book on-line: www.cmfs.org.au), then contact our office to arrange a few meetings with one of our priests. Your first meeting with one of them should occur at least 6 months prior to your wedding. He will guide you through paperwork, theology of the sacrament of marriage and the ceremony. If you wish to have a priest other than one of our priests, he would be most welcome. You will need to make the necessary arrangements with him.

Ps. Before you see a priest, please get your birth certificate* and a copy of the baptismal certificate (from the parish you were baptised at). Also, if your previous marriage has been annulled, the celebrant must sight the annulment papers.
