HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE FUTURE OF OUR PARISH

Some of you may be aware that additional sites have recently been acquired adjacent to St Patrick’s Catholic Parish and the schools.  This additional land has given us an exciting opportunity to re-imagine the whole campus to create a vibrant and modern Parish community, right at the heart of Sutherland. There will be space for much needed Parish and community facilities like a new parish centre, café, parish meeting rooms and a long daycare centre. The Parish church will be at the centre of the new plans and we want to hear your views about what should be included in the long-term Vision for St Patrick’s. All ideas are welcome to help create a shared vision for the long term pastoral and financial sustainability of the parish.

There will be a Parish consultation session after the 8am and 10am Masses on Sunday 22nd November - come along to find out more and have your say. If you can’t make it to Mass that Sunday, we will be providing other opportunities for you to provide feedback – watch this space!


WELCOME BACK FATHER JOHN!

We are happy to announce that our Parish Priest has returned! Father John will be celebrating all masses this weekend 24/25 October. He will be joined at all masses by the Very Rev Dr Gerald Gleeson (Vicar General), and at 8am and 10am by the Most Rev Bishop Richard Umbers.

CONFIRMATION

We are happy to announce that the Sacrament of Confirmation will be held at our parish in November/December 2020.
