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.
Sacrament’s dates for the year 2019:
First Holy Communion: 9 am Sunday 25 August 2019

LEGION OF MARY: Our Lady of Mt Carmel School students sincerely thank Marion Randall and Moya Bruce for helping our students pray and learn about the rosary. Our students will look after the beautiful rosary beads that you provided for them all. May God bless and we look forward to continuing to work with the Legion of Mary.
CHURCH REPAIR UPDATE: Our church roof repair is completed now. The whole roofs have been replaced with proper bolts. Painting inside the church roof needs to be completed. I hope that Catholic Church Insurance will support us to cover some of the expenses. Parish has to spend $79200.00 dollars just to replace the roof. This amount is from our reserve and long term saving fund (emergency). Some parishioners so far have donated $3520.00 dollars. I like to thank all the parishioners who have generously donated. Church needs more ongoing support and it is all part of the maintenance. I encourage all parishioners to continue your donation and to consider to join in our Parish Planned giving Programme… Fr Paul.
NATIONAL VOCATIONS AWARENESS WEEK: Vocations come from families, communities and parishes. Strong families and communities are the place where vocations are first nurtured. In this National Vocations Awareness Week, let us pray for all families in our parish, and for those preparing for marriage. Let us also pray that our parish community may always be welcoming and encouraging of vocations to marriage, priesthood and consecrated life.
