About Our Parish
Holy Trinity Prayer Group: Our Parish Charismatic prayer group gathers every Monday at 7.00pm throughout the year except Christmas season. There will be a mass on last Monday of the month at 7.30pm.
Everyone is welcome. If you want to send prayer requests, please send us an email. We as a group will offer our prayers for you. We believe that Prayer gives spiritual strength.
STEWARDSHIP: Scriptural Texts – Matthew 6:24-34 … “No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one or love the other or be devoted to one and despise the other.”
PIETY STALL: Open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday mornings before and after 9am Masses. Please contact Marion on 0415 917 496 for more information.
CHRISTMAS HAMPER RAFFLE: The Christmas Hamper Raffle was drawn after 9am Mass on Sunday 29 December and the winner was Jaimon Poulose. Congratulations and enjoy! The raffle raised $254.50. Thank you for your support.

Parishioners who come to our church regularly or occasionally, including volunteers and visitors, please fill in the New Parishioner Registration Form. Your presence is very important to our parish. 1. Consider to join in Planned Giving Programme. 2. If you are already in the programme, please contribute regularly. 3. Donation of any amount is welcome to support our Church repair… Church roof repair is an ongoing maintenance. Catholic Church Insurance will be supporting the painting of the inside of the church roof. Our small meeting room also needs attention. After consulting our Finance committee, the three doors in our meeting room will be replaced. The job was given to Mark Berkovic who is our parish Locksmith. Each door costs $1800.00 dollars. Any parishioner willing to donate, please contact Fr Paul.
OLMC CHURCH CLOSED FOR REPAIR WORK: The Church will be closed from 20 to 31 January 2020 due to ceiling restoration and painting. There will be a scaffold inside. For safety reasons, no-one is to enter the church. Weekday Masses will be celebrated in the Meeting Room. On the weekend of 25 – 26 January, Masses will be celebrated in the School Hall. Fr Paul.
PLENARY COUNCIL PRAYER: Come, Holy Spirit of Pentecost. Come, Holy Spirit of the great South Land. O God, bless and unite all your people in Australia and guide us on the pilgrim way of the Plenary Council. Give us the grace to see your face in one another and to recognise Jesus, our companion on the road. Give us the courage to tell our stories and to speak boldly of your truth. Give us ears to listen humbly to each other and a discerning heart to hear what you are saying. Lead your Church into a hope-filled future, that we may live the joy of the Gospel. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, bread for the journey from age to age. Amen.
PLENARY COUNCIL 2020 – CALL FOR DELEGATE NOMINATIONS: Perth Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB is now seeking nominations from laypeople, members of religious orders and clergy from the Archdiocese of Perth who are willing to be called as delegates for the Plenary Council Sessions in October 2020 and June/July 2021. This is an historically significant opportunity for open-hearted, faith-filled people who are committed to the faith, life and ministries of the Catholic Church in Australia and the mission of God. The role will involve prayer, reflection, discernment, formation and an understanding of Plenary Council protocols. As a delegate, you will collaborate with other delegates, participate in the process of communal discernment and actively contribute to activities before, during and after the Plenary Council Sessions of approximately one week in October 2020 in Adelaide and one week in Sydney in June/July 2021. In addition, there will be time required for formation and preparation as well as time required to read the Plenary Council Session papers and documents. Ideally, delegates will have experience in: • communal discernment or shared decision making; • working co-operatively in different situations; and • with the pastoral life of the church. To be considered for this role, expressions of interest must be submitted on the form provided for this purpose. Applications that do not include all of the above will not be considered. Also, due to the tight time frames for the Plenary Council process, late applications will not be considered. Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, young people, people with disabilities and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. You can download a full Role Description, Expression of Interest Form and other information at www.perthcatholic.org.au.
