Men of St Patrick's
Our Men of St Patrick's group was born as a result of the very succesful menAlive weekend where many men devoted themselves to the Lord. We have a number of scripture journaling groups that meet every second week. Our men's choir sings every 3 months at one of the Sunday Masses. We also hold a men's retreats and events on a regular basis.
Our mission is to make men feel at home in the parish, and to encourage them to serve in parish ministry.

Knights of the Southern Cross
The St Patrick’s Cathedral Parish is the home of the South West Branch of the Knights of the Southern Cross, a chivalrous Order of Catholic laymen which operates at parish, state, and national levels with the support of the Australian Bishops. The national body is affiliated with a network of similar organisations in some 27 countries. Its mission is to witness to Jesus Christ by advocating Christian values and beliefs in society and leading the laity in a spirit of service inspired by the Gospel.
Driven by its vision to be a strong and faith-filled Catholic fraternity committed to serving the Church, its objectives include fostering the Christian way of life and supporting educational, charitable, religious, and social welfare works. From its origin in WA in 1922 when it was established to combat the prevalent anti-Christian sectarianism and discrimination its focus now is on evangelisation to support the social apostolate challenging the increasing anti-Christian values penetrating society.
Bunbury Cathedral parish is serviced by the KSC-sponsored Southern Plus in-home service, an arm of Southern Cross Care (WA) that was established in 1966 to provide aged care facilities throughout the state. Among other activities, the SW Branch organises an annual dinner at Bunbury with eminent speakers which attracts up to 100 guests.
The branch meets at 7pm on the 3rd Wednesday of the month in the parish meeting rooms. For further information contact Laurie Sutherland on 0488966400.
The Neocatechumenal Way is defined by St John Paul II when he writes: “I recognize the Neocatechumenal Way as an itinerary of Catholic formation, valid for our society and for our times.” The Neocatechumenal Way is at the service of the bishop as one of the forms of diocesan implementation of Christian initiation in faith.
The purpose of the Neocatechumenal Way in the parish is to form a community of brothers and sisters, who, rediscovering the riches of their baptism, will be able to love one another as Christ loves them. This community, like the Holy Family of Nazareth, will be a visible sign of God’s love for the far away, in particular for those who are new to the faith and for those returning to the Church.
The community in Bunbury has been formed since 2011 with the help of two mission families, which are one of the charisms of the Neocatechumenal Way.
