Queen Elizabeth II

21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022

Merciful Father and Lord of all life,
we praise you that we are made in your image and reflect your truth and light.
We thank you for the life of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, for the love she received from you and showed among us.
Above all, we rejoice at your gracious promise to all your servants, living and departed, that we shall rise again at the coming of Christ. We ask that in due time we may share with your servant Elizabeth
that clearer vision promised to us in the same Christ our Lord; who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Reflect on the Gospel 

Each Thursday after the 8am Mass, a Gospel Reflection group lead by Fr. Darlington reflects on the Gospel for the upcoming week. It's a great way to get ready for the Sunday Mass, learn more about our Faith and listen for God's Good News. It's also a great place to meet others from our parish and share how the Gospel message can be lived out daily.

All are Welcome. They're even complimentary coffee, tea and snacks.

Feel free to bring a chair, a coffee and good spirits.
