On Sunday 25 April 2021, the Church celebrates the 58th World Day of Prayer for Vocations and Good Shepherd Sunday.  The Daughters of Divine Zeal (FDZ) will open their Chapel for Eucharistic Adoration for vocations.  You are most welcome to participate. Limited onsite car parking is available.

You are invited to a Memorial Mass for Fr Phil Crotty SJ, who recently went home to God.  The Mass will be followed by a morning tea in the Hall. All welcome.

This Sunday we mark Anzac Day, commemorating the men and women who served, and who sacrificed their lives in the terrible conflicts of World War I. The Australian Jesuits recall two Jesuit chaplains, one of whom was Parish Priest here at Richmond, who were very much present with those in amongst the dangers and devastation of war.

Our Parish Priest, Fr Trung SJ, has reconvened the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) in 2021. The members of the PPC are: Fr Trung SJ, Therese Keogh (Chair), Sr Helen Buckley fcJ (Secretary), Sr Floriana Lapolla FDZ, Licia Marchese, Katarina Radonic, Julian Butler, Vu Nguyen, Nigel Rodrigues and Maurice Sheehan.

It is with great sadness we inform you that Fr Phil Crotty SJ went to the embrace of his God on Wednesday 07 April 2021 during his sleep, at the age of 89 years.

Wishing everyone a joyous Easter. After missing the 2020 Easter celebration due to COVID-19, we are gradually getting back to some normality.
