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.


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 and  participating in the beautiful devotion of the Stations of the Cross. 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.

Christmas Message

"In your own heart"

Though Christ a thousand times

In Bethlehem be born,

If He’s not born in you

Your soul is still forlorn

The cross on Golgotha

Will never save your soul,

The cross in your own heart

Alone can make you whole.

Angelus Silesius


Our wishes for you and your loved ones are that Christ be born in your hearts

and you truly experience what Jesus has to offer us: peace, joy and happiness for the Christmas Season and the New Year.

Merry Christmas from all of us!

Fr Emil, Fr Adam and Secretaries: Arlene, Rosalia & Alice
