Dear Parishioner and Friends of the Parish, I welcome you to our parish website and hope that you will enjoy discovering information about our parish personnel and various organisations active in our parish. We broadcast our ceremonies via the Internet so that your family members who live far from home may be able to join us spiritually. Our lists, descriptions and activities are not exhaustive and we welcome any suggestions that you may have with regard to improving our service to you. So, whether you are a new arrival or someone who has lived here a long time I hope that this website gives you a flavour of our services and maybe that it will inspire you to join one of our parish groups. I pray God’s Blessing on all who visit this website. “May Almighty God Bless you and those you know and Love.
