Peace  Prayer



make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.


Grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;                                                   to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love;

for it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;                               and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Do  This  in  Memory

Family Mass for First Communion children and their families this Sunday, 11.00am. The focus will be on the relationship with Jesus that arises from Baptism. A ‘refresher’ for each & all of us.
