A Prayer for Peace

Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the true King of peace.
In You alone is found freedom.

Please free our world from conflict.
Bring unity to troubled nations.
Let Your glorious peace reign in every heart.

Dispel all darkness and evil.
Protect the dignity of every human life.
Replace hatred with Your love.

Give wisdom to world leaders.
Free them from selfish ambition.
Eliminate all violence and war.

Glorious Virgin Mary,
Saint Michael the Archangel,
Every angel and saint:
Please pray for peace.
Pray for unity amongst nations.
Pray for unity amongst all people.
Pray for the most vulnerable.
Pray for those suffering.
Pray for the fearful.
Pray for those most in need.
Pray for us all.

Jesus, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us.
Jesus, hear our prayers.
Jesus, I trust in You!




Giving to the Parish

We are very grateful for your continuing support of our Parish. 

The parish will always accept cash but for those who are not happy handling it we have multiple ways you can continue to support the parish.

If you would like to give to the parish but are unable to get to church you can still give by depositing directly into the parish accounts. If you have an envelope number please put it into the reference field when giving to the parish if you would like a receipt. If it is for the priests (First Collection) you do not have to put anything in the reference field.

Tap and Go

Because of Covid-19 and the decrease in using cash, the parish has purchased a Tap and Go machine for the collection of monies for the first and second collections. It is in the body of the church between the sacristy and the side door and accepts Mastercard and Visa along with debit cards. For every dollar, 30 cents goes to the parish presbytery account and 70 cents goes to our parish. 

Qkr! App

The parish is signed up with secure Qkr! by Mastercard App, as a way to make payments to the parish. It’s an app that you can download for your phone, from the App store or Google Play, and use to make payments for collections before during and after Mass, even when you are away. Every payment you make is recorded within your app wallet for easy reference at a later date and your Mastercard or Visa Card details are stored with the security of Masterpass (not on your phone) for ready access when making payment. This app can also be used to make payments for the various special collections throughout the year, Project Compassion, The Priest's Retirement Foundation Father's Day Appeal, Mission Sunday and The Archbishop's Christmas Appeal as well as sacramental payments baptisms, First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation (Confirmations every 2nd year) . There are leaflets about Qkr! available in the foyer of the church.

We also have periodic bank debit and Credit card debits that can be set up for you - just talk to the parish office.

Urgent: Help Needed for Parish Cleaning

Each week volunteers prepare St Benedict’s church for the weekend Masses and ceremonies.  A roster of two people is set up for the arrangement of flowers and a little cleaning, not vacuuming the church.  

Could any interested party please consider helping the Parish in this way, it would involve giving an hour every 4-5 weeks usually on a Saturday morning around 9.00.   

If you think you could help and would like to know what is involved please feel free to call the Parish office or text Sue on 0407 269 193.
