Update – 27th May

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Alpha  has to  be postponed. Dates and more details will be published in the bulletin. We will need more volunteers  to create a core group to run the programme. If interested please contact Tresa Andrews (mobile: 0421931888, email:


The Parish Pastoral Council has been discussing bringing the Alpha program to St Pat’s. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith. It is run all around the world – in cafes, churches, universities, name it, but all programs have three key things in common – eat, watch and chat.

Alpha coversing topics like: Is there more to life than this?; How does God guide us?; What about the church? ……… and many more.

Expert contributors include Cardinal Schonborn of Vienna and Fr Raniero Cantalamessa, as well as inspiring stories from around the world, people transformed by the love of Jesus.

When? The PPC is considering starting on Friday evening, June 1st at 7:00pm and to continue every Friday for 5 weeks; breaking for two weeks of school holidays and back again in mid-July. The commitment doesn’t need to be the 15 weeks; parishioners can join in and feel free to make their own choice.

It would be really great to have a couple more people to add to the Team to get the ball rolling. For more info contact Tresa Andrews @0421 931 888, or Fr Bernard.
