Upcoming Events


A council of the Australian Catholic Church has been called for 2020. Your input to the questions set out below is invited and encouraged.

You may respond as an individual or as part of a small group in your home, through your school or in the parish.

Questions for discussion:

           · What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?

           · What questions about the future of the Church in Australia should the Council consider?

· What story or experience of faith would you like to share?


Either email them to or type them up and leave them at the parish office and they will be emailed from the parish.

Could the convenors of groups notify the parish office and give us their contact details and obtain guidelines and prayer focuses for your meeting.


The Sacraments of First Reconciliation  and First Eucharist will be offered in St Joseph’s Parish, Grenfell this year.
