Parish Vision

Inspired by our faith in Jesus, we pray, listen, and welcome all as we reach out in service to transform the world.

Parish Pastoral Committee

The Parish pastoral Committee met on 3rd July and covered several matters including:

  1. The response to the call for new PPC members. The outcomes of the nomination process will be announced shortly. Retiring member Brendan Gibson was thanked for his extensive contribution as co-chair.
  2. The benefit of having additional sources of live music for some occasions like multicultural Masses or youth-focused celebrations.
  3. The positive engagement between parish and the schools was acknowledged, in particular the beautiful Confirmation on 2 July.
  4. Given limited response from parishioners, planning for a Parish Lament and Healing ceremony in the Safeguarding Sunday week will be progressed with the Liturgy Committee and the one volunteer.
  5. Sarah Lowe will convene the Parish Website Development Group to finalise requirements.
  6. The design for a new Parish Sign at each site was approved. Each sign will match the colour of the existing school sign at each site (as the Parish does not have a specific colour design). To avoid clutter and the need to update regularly, the wording will be minimal: the name of the church and Parish, a welcome, office phone number and website name.

Baptisms are celebrated regularly in the parish. 

If you would like to have your child Baptised, please complete the Baptism Details Form which can be found on the "application forms''  tab on the left of the screen. You will also find an introductory letter from Fr. Simon. Baptisms are celebrated at the following times in the parish:

2nd Sunday of the month at 11:30am, St. Matthew's Church, Page

4th Sunday of the month at 11:30am, St. Vincent's Church, Aranda
