Our Pastoral Council consists of our Priests together with a group of parishioners nominated by the parish community. Their role is to promote the Church’s mission to live and communicate the love and values of Christ in our world.
Child Safe Parish
The Diocese of Sale is continuing to work towards creating Child Safe Parishes. Whilst we still deal with the horrors of the past and endeavour to bring healing to the hurts, we are trying to look forward, too, as we make a more conscious effort to create safe and supportive Parishes for everyone, but especially for children.
Our schools are a welcoming community of students, families and staff. They are inspired by the Scriptures and traditions of the Catholic faith to educate and develop the whole person within an environment offering respect, justice and success.
At St Mary’s Op Shop, everything you buy or donate inspires change in our local community. It stocks a wide range of donated items including furniture, electrical goods, clothing, footwear, toys and books.
