We are a community of people who strive to answer the call of Christ by living out our Christian witness in following him in in his Church, in communion with our Archbishop and our Holy Father the Pope, who is the successor of St Peter.

At the very heart of our life is the worship of God at Mass, through which we are sanctified as his people. From the celebration of Mass, we receive the grace and strength of God’s Holy Spirit to live the life of Christ, serving him ever more faithfully in our local community and in the world. We welcome everyone to share in our faith.”
