We follow the words of our patron, St John Vianney, who said "He is here".
We recognize Christ is in the Word, the Eucharist, and in us, His people with a special reverence for Him in the poor and marginalized.
We are called to make Christ present through our prayer and charity.
We seek to grow in our spiritual lives and create a community where everyone is welcome; the young and old, together to experience the loving presence of God.
We believe He is here amongst us and we joyfully go out to make Him present to all.
CATHOLIC MISSION — World Mission Sunday 2021
This week Catholic Mission will share the story of Churai, who having experienced much heartbreak in childhood, turned to the Mother and Babies Home run by the Good Shepherd Sisters in Bangkok when her partner cast she experienced rejection as an adult, abandoned by her partner and pregnant. Without this program, many vulnerable mothers like Churai will have nowhere to turn when they need love and care the most. Please give generously today to help continue this life-giving program by using the appeal envelope, going online at catholicmission.org.au/thailand or by texting ’GIVE’ to 0488 854 436. Your gift will also help many other similar Church-run mission programs around the world.
