News from the Parish Council: Vision and Values and Next Steps

We are a prayerful and diverse Catholic community

drawing strength from one another to grow
and become fully alive as missionary disciples.
Also, through your involvement in the survey and on-going discussions, the Values of the Parish have been defined as:
Welcoming, Prayerful, Community,
Supportive/caring, Missionary, Connected
The Parish Council wishes to thank you all for your help in establishing the Vision and Values for the Holy Trinity Parish. These are the sign posts to guide us as we develop our future plans.

Holy Cross Mass Rosters are ready to be collected from the back of the church.
NOVEMBER PRAYERS FOR THE DEAD: As November is the traditional month for special prayers for our loved ones, parishioners are asked to write the names and place them in the box on the Altar steps, or give them to the priest. At St Patrick’s Church Envelopes are available in the foyer. Because of the large number of names, we will only print anniversaries or recent. All names will be remembered in Masses offered during November.
