House Blessings

An invitation to our Parishioners for ‘Year of Mercy’ programHouse visits/blessing As the year of Mercy rolls on, if you are interested in having your home blessed the priests are available. Just contact the parish office 9401 6300 NB: Please notify us of anyone in the home that would like to be anointed due to ill health [if you need]

Pilgrimage to Cathedral

“The practice of pilgrimage has a special place in the Holy Year, because it represents the journey each of us makes in this life” (Pope Francis, MV). We are offering you a pilgrimage to Cathedral to enter through the ‘Holy door of Mercy’ to experience the forgiving love of God and to visit ‘Mackillop heritage’ centre on Saturday 5th November 2016. The program of the day is published in our website. If you are interested please put your name down on the waiting list as we have reached our maximum of 25. Nb. Please bring your lunch and Myki card.


There are many roles in our Saturday night/Sunday Masses: from washing and ironing the ‘linen’ the week before, to leading us in music as each Mass ends – and everything in between. All Parishioners who are involved in these ‘ministries’ are invited to a ‘refresher’ session – This is also an easy opportunity for more Parishioners to join in these ministries – we really need more people in all these activities: please ring/email the Parish Office to let us know that you are interested. There will be three of these ‘refresher and recruiting’ sessions, hoping to suit your timetable:  Tuesday 15th November at St Peter’s at 10am and repeated at 7.30pm; and at SMCM Epping North on Wednesday 16th November at 7.30pm.

Christmas Cards for Purchase

St Peter’s 150th Anniversary Christmas cards will be available at all Masses this weekend 5 cards for $5

Ministry Rosters

New Ministry Rosters were issued via mail or email. If you did not receive your copy, your details have changed or your ministry commitment has changed please contact the Parish Office as soon as possible on 9401 6300 or Thank you!!

Year of Mercy - Special Children’s Liturgy

From this weekend we will have a special Children’s Liturgy for our young Parishioners, for the next four weeks. The aim is that the children might know more about the mercy and forgiveness of God, through stories and other similar activities. They will be asked to draw/ colour pictures at home: parents please encourage them to bring that work sheet on the following week. They will be put at the foyer of the churches to be viewed by all the Parishioners.
