Our jumble sale held on the 2nd March was a great success.

Thank you for your incredible generosity in time of need.

We continue to appeal to parishioners for jumble as well as plastic bags for our future sales.

Easter Egg Appeal

We are encouraged to give alms during Lent.  Help to spread the good news of the Resurrection of Jesus by donating marshmallow easter eggs to destitute children. The charity organisations of Caritas will distribute them with a message of hope on each box.  Please deliver to the collection box in the foyer of the Church or Parish Office.

Paschal Meal – Palm Sunday 
24 March 12h00 – 15h00

We kindly urge Parishioners attending Sunday 7.30am Mass to PLEASE TURN LEFT into Sloane Street when leaving the Church. Please DO NOT turn right into Sloane Street as this causes major congestion on exiting the Church. Your kind cooperation is greatly appreciated.

You are invited to book for a family or group party, or join a table, and journey with Father Joe through a modern Christian re-enactment of Jesus’s Last Supper Passover Meal.  Take this opportunity to deepen your own or your family’s understanding of the Eucharist that we celebrate each Sunday. Tickets R240.00 for adults, R120.00 for children 12 years and under. NB.  Please bring your own wine and/or grape juice.

God so loved the world that he gave us his only Son. What can we give in return? (John 3:14-21)




Loving God, 
during the sacred season of Lent, 
bring us closer to you.  
Prepare a place in our parish 
and in our hearts for silence and solitude, 
so that we may rediscover the grace of a prayerful life.  Help us to fast from those things 
that threaten the well-being of our bodies and souls; remind us of the grace of simplicity. 
Grant us generous hearts 
so that we can give to those in need and, 
in so doing, 
rediscover the grace of gratitude and generosity.  
May this season be a grace filled time 
to rekindle a love for you. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
