St Vincent De Paul Christmas Hampers

Thank you, once again, for all the food donations that have been sent to school for the St Vincent de Paul Christmas hamper collection. We are very grateful for the positive response that we have had to our request so far and are looking forward to adding to this collection over the few weeks.


Children’s Liturgy

CHILDREN’S LITURGY is held during the 9.30am Mass each Sunday at St Francis of Assisi church, and is for children from Pre-Primary to Year 4.  The children hear the Gospel story at their level and then follow with an activity.  Please bring your child to the hall before mass.  They will then return to the Church after the Prayers of the Faithful. For further enquiries call Philomena on 0417 936 757.
