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

From 24th May until Phase 3 of COVID Roadmap

We recognise that there is a deep desire for everyone to receive communion and return to their regular prayer life including Mass. The new government regulations put a limit of 20 people plus 10 helpers, who can attend a particular Mass.

We have increased the number of Masses available during the week and on the weekend, but we realise that it still may not be enough to allow everyone to participate in the Weekend Mass. If you can’t be at Mass on the weekend, you will continue to be dispensed of your obligation to attend Sunday Mass. 

We ask for your understanding and patience, as we try to do our best in providing for your needs in this difficult time. Let us all hope and pray, that it will not be long when everyone will have a free and easy access to the Sunday Eucharist.      

This is a day of Fast and Abstinence
St Lawrence: Masses at 9am & 7.30pm
St Theresa: Mass at 10.30am

Lent is a time of preparation for Easter, which is the greatest feast day on our Christian calendar. We can prepare for it by spending more time on prayer, participating in the beautiful devotion of the Stations of the Cross (see times below) and being part of a Lenten Reflection Group (see Church notice board for details). All these activities give us an opportunity to renew our relationship with God and one another and to grow in our understanding and appreciation of the beauty of our Catholic faith.

 

Stations of the Cross
On Fridays 4pm at St Theresa, Gwelup followed by Communion Service.

On Fridays 7pm at St Lawrence, Balcatta followed by Mass at 7.30pm.
On Tuesdays 7pm (in Italian) at St Lawrence, Balcatta followed by Mass at 7.30pm.
