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.


Salvatorian Collaborators

This group supports our priests in prayer and endeavors to learn more about the Salvatorian Society.  We meet on the 2nd Friday of each month commencing with Mass at 7.30pm at Balcatta, followed by a meeting in the Alverna Centre where we offer prayers and hymns and continue our study on Salvatorian spirituality.

Close to one hundred Collaborators from New South Wales and Western Australia met at the Salvatorian Community House Currambine, for a special Mass of the launching of the Salvatorian Collaborators Vision and Mission Statement.

The main celebrant was Father Leonard Macionczyk SDS, Director of the Salvatorian Collaborators in Australia. Priests who concelebrated together with Father Leonard were: Father Karol Kulczycki SDS, Regional Superior of the Salvatorians in Australia, Father Bronislaw Pietrusewicz SDS, Vice-Superior of the Australian Region, and Father Emil Ciecierega SDS, Chaplain of the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry.

Before the launching ceremony and after the Gospel, Father Leonard gave a homily. He outlined the history of the Salvatorian Collaborators in Australia and pointed out the important milestones along the way. Father Leonard also expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the present and past members of the Salvatorian Collaborator Leadership Team for their hard work and dedication. In his homily, he also thanked all parishioners, who have been collaboratively working hand in hand with the Salvatorian Priests in proclaiming the good news of the Gospel.

The Salvatorian Collaborators in Australia have come a long way since their humble beginnings in 2006. The Vision and Mission Statement as well as the Core Values give the Salvatorian Collaborators in Australia clear guidelines and direction for their future growth. Now inspired by the Holy Spirit and the example of the Founder, Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan, they are able to work collaboratively with the Salvatorian Priests in Australia whilst actively helping others to know and love Jesus Christ our Saviour.

The inspiring music was provided by the choir from Ocean Reef parish led by Thierry Venaille.

The evening concluded with tea and coffee and a special celebratory cake that was enjoyed by all.
