My dear parishioners and visitors,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our new parish website where we will try and keep you up to date and informed about life and services in the parish. We have got a great "crew" of men and women who are willing to serve the community in different ways and together we have made our parish "outstanding"! You can read more in our Annual Report here.
My dear brothers and sisters keep the good works going. May the Lord continue to be with us and bless our parish throughout the year ahead.
Fr. Michael Ho Huu Nghia, Parish Priest
Prayer for the Synod
This Sunday 5th October The Holy Father will open the III Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. They will discuss “The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of the Evangelization”. We join together with our Holy Father to pray for this Intention.
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendour of true love to you we turn with trust. Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too, may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing. Holy Family of Nazareth, may the approaching Synod of Bishops make us once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family and its beauty in God’s plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph graciously hear our prayer. Amen."
Lord God, our light and our salvation, we praise you for your gifts of life and faith.
We thank you for the desire that you have planted in our hearts,our yearning to see your face.
Help us to meet you in prayer, to walk in your ways,
and to speak to others of our joy and consolation in your presence.
Give us faithfulness in this present life so that we may come to know and praise your beauty, with all our brothers and sisters, in the life to come.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
