How can I get involved?

You are very welcome to all our services and activities, but most of all to Sunday mass. This is the most important day for us when we come together as a family in God. It is a chance to give thanks for the week that has been and find strength for the week ahead.

At the l0 am Mass on Sunday our Children’s Liturgy Group leads activities for children during part of our Mass and we have coffee in our Hall afterwards.
If you have been away from the Church for any reason, we would like to extend the hand of friendship to you and offer any assistance we can.

Other opportunities

We have a prayer evening on a Monday at  7.15pm for one hour with exposition and  Benediction.
As a Parish, we endeavour to reach out to those in need locally and throughout the world. Our justice and Peace Group is very active in coordinating this work.
There are also opportunities to be involved with Hospitality, Fund Raising, Welcoming, Reading, Choir, Altar Servers, Flowers and Cleaning.

The Sacrament of baptism is Celebrated regularly at the cathedral. There is a short course of 3 evenings over 3 weeks for parents before the celebration. Begin by making yourself known to the priests and completing a baptism form, which can be obtained in the cathedral shop.

We run a first Holy Communion program in partnership with our schools, beginning in Primary School year 3, with the celebration in year 4. Attendance of a Catholic school is not a requisite requirement.
