Social 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!


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.

We meet on the last Thursday of every month at the RSL Club @ 9.30am


Meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month from 9am in the John Paul Centre. This group comes together to share skills and provide a social outlet.  Craft work is often made for donation to the hospital and to support our parish fair or other worthy causes.

The group also meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the RSL Club for a social cuppa (Anyone is welcome to come along).  We meet at 10am on The Deck
