From Fr Michael

A blessed Easter to you!

May the joy of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, fill our hearts and lives with light so that we can share this Good News to our families and friends!

A very big and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has prepared the church and liturgy for Easter Triddum.  To our flower donors and arrangers, the cleaning team, our Hospitality Team who have welcomed so many people to our church, our musicians, servers and above all, your presence with us in person and online.  This really is the celebration of a community of faith. Thank you!

As you can see, the week following Easter is a little lighter.  We begin an Octave of celebrations, 8 days of feasting, so celebrate well and take it easy!

Every blessing for Easter,

Fr Michael
Going Cashless
There are three ways you can help:
  1. Give by standing order (form)
  2. Use the 'Tap and Go' machine in church
  3. Give online
Thank you for your support, however you give!
Our new boxed envelopes are ready to collect!
Getting More from Scripture

Praying with the Word of God is much more than listening to readings at Holy Mass on Sunday.

Download the readings for use at Holy Mass, and use them for prayer during the week.
There is no booking or reservation required for our Easter liturgies.  All are welcome.  Once we have reached our capacity, we our Hospitality Team will invite you to watch online, or attend another liturgy.  Apologies for any inconvenience.  Our liturgies are in accordance with current guidelines.

This week, we pray for:

Easter Offering

The collection on Easter Sunday is the traditional offering for the Parish Priest.  As we are encouraging the whole parish to become a little more cashless, there is now an option to make your Easter Offering online, or using Tap and Go. Please note: no Gift Aid will be collected on this.

Track and Trace Stickers!
Help us speed up track and trace by signing up to get a sheet of 65 little stickers with your name and phone number on.

All we ask for is a donation to cover printing and the cost of the labels. Click here to order.

Sir Captain Tom Rose

There has been a rose named after Sir Captain Tom Rose in recognition for his work and example over the last year.  We have been donated a rose which will join our growing collection of roses around St Teresa.  We look forward to the summer display!  A big thank you for the rose!
