Happy Mother's Day 2020

Today we celebrate Mother's Day. Each year our liturgies would include the distribution of beautiful flowers (often chrysanthemums) to the women in the congregation or to be passed on to them by their families and friends present at Mass. This year, although we are unable to mark this day with you in person, we can still offer a prayer and thank God for our mums, mums-to-be, grand and great-grand mums and for all those women who have been spiritual mothers to us and others. We invite you to share a prayer for the inspirational woman or women in your life on our Mother's Day Facebook post.

God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Many people have been enquiring about how they can contribute financially to the parish while all places of worship are closed as part of the government restrictions in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Fr Nguyễn Viết Huy SJ PP

Dear Parishioners

At a time when we would be gathering to celebrate liturgies for Holy Week and Easter, we find ourselves separated from one another due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our way of life and worshipping together has changed for now, but we endure these unprecedented circumstances for the safety and wellbeing of each other.
