Social Groups

PARISH FAMILY GROUPS

The Family Group Movement, begun by Fr Peter McGrath, a Passionist Priest, in Sydney, 1972, aims to build up community spirit where people know each other by name and share each other’s joys and sorrows.  Groups gather once a month for a family type gathering (picnic, bbq etc) and gradually develop supportive relationships.

Our Parish Family Groups, supported by the Passionist Movement, was set up in our Parish in September 2006, with over 100 adults and children involved.  It is our hope that these groups continue to grow, as more people in the Parish and School communities join in.

Each group consists of about 10-15 families, with a cross section of ages, from babies to grandparents; single people, one-parent families, non-Church attending spouses are all involved.  All are welcome!

SUNDAY MORNING CUPPA

Every Sunday, after the 9am Mass, there is a cuppa on the veranda – a great chance to get to know others in our parish family.  Some families are rostered on, to serve the cuppa.  If anyone would like to help out, please contact Leigh.

MONTHLY MORNING TEA

This monthly morning tea is aimed at offering an opportunity for parishioners to meet in a purely social way over a cuppa with no agenda except to share each other’s company.  It is hoped that the welcoming spirit of this gathering may allow people to get to know each other a little better.

This is an open invitation to all to gather at the RSL at Poppies Cafe at 9.30am on the last Thursday of the month.
