Participants in the washing of the feet and the presentation of the gifts on Holy Thursday. Eucharistic Ministers who take the Communion to the sick. Those who assisted for the veneration of the cross, the young people who lead the Stations of the Cross; those who prepared the Palm for Palm Sunday, the altar of Repose and the altar area for Holy Thursday and those who prepared the flowers for the Easter Vigil and the Easter Sunday.  We  congratulate  Joseph & Sabrina Boyle, their son Cian;  John & Frances Naughton and their daughter Carla on the baptism of their children and  Abraham Zidan who received the sacrament of Confirmation  at the Vigil Mass.

We wish all our parishioners a very happy and joyful Easter.



An Easter Blessing

May the risen Christ fill you with joy,

A joy only he can give.

May his triumph bring new hope and

new light into your life.

May you share today in the exaltation experienced by all his disciples.

May you be a witness to his resurrection to all you meet and greet today.
