Our Mission is to continue growing as a community where people can meet Jesus Christ and grow in his life and mission in the Catholic Faith.
The spirituality our parish mission is expressed best in the parish prayer of St Therese of Avila.
Christ has no body on earth but yours;
no hands but yours;
no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which he is to look out-
Christ's compassion to the world.
Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless others now.
To be a Parish that is open and transparent, nurturing, united and inclusive.
To be a community that is welcoming, embracing and caring for families, youth and valuing cultural diversity.
To be a Parish that brings those who do not know Christ into relationship with him.
Stewardship - A way of Life

REFLECTION FOR THIS WEEK
JESUS APPEARING TO HIS DISCIPLES
The disciples’ first reaction in this account today is one of fear and alarm. In one sense, this is not the Jesus who died on the cross - but it is still fully the same person they had known. They are amazed and filled with joy. Jesus is indeed risen; he is still fully in our world and part of it although in a very different way from before Good Friday.
He now explains how what had happened to him was all foretold clearly in the Scriptures. His suffering, death and resurrection were all part of God’s plan. In the name of that Jesus who suffered, died and rose, forgiveness of sin - total reconciliation with God - was to be proclaimed to the whole world. In the First Letter of John today we hear: “Jesus is the sacrifice that takes our sins away ...”
The mission and mandate of the disciples is proclaimed in the First Reading as Peter speaks: “You are witnesses to this.” He explains the real meaning of what happened to Jesus and how they are to respond to the message. Without our co-operating with Jesus, the message of reconciliation and forgiveness will not be heard.
As the Second Reading says: “… we know God only by keeping his commandments.” This means following the commandment of unconditional love, to love others as Jesus has loved us.
It is for each one of us today to ask how, given the circumstances of our own lives, we can most effectively get that message across to the people around us. Many have never heard the message at all. Others have never heard it in all its clarity and power.
Everyone needs to hear the greeting: “Peace be with you” and to experience the peace that only Jesus can give. Can we carry that message today - to even one other person?
