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

Paul and the community at Corinth
For the next few weeks the Second Reading will come from Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians. Corinth was an important seaport in the early days of Christianity. Paul had established a Christian community there around AD 51, and spent time there with the converts. Later on Paul heard that there were problems and disagreements about beliefs, worship practice and leadership. In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul gave good practical advice on what is most important about being a believing community. The Resurrection is central to faith, and love is central to everything they do and say.
After the first letter, some other missionaries undermined Paul’s credibility, and so he wrote again.
He was able to put things into perspective, and told them that through Christ all will be well. Through Christ we are reconciled with God – God is able to overcome the sin and weakness that separates us from God’s love.
In this passage he notes that: ‘We walk by faith, not by sight.’ His focus was on the coming of the Lord , and at this point he is focused on ‘living with him’, and his communion with Jesus cannot be broken.
Paul longs to be at home with the Lord in God’s eternal embrace.
He stresses the practical nature of being a disciple of Jesus. It is about doing good not evil, and doing good involves all our mind and heart and soul, and also all our body. It is not just good intentions, but our lifestyle that is important.
