By the time we’re reading this our first communicants for 2016 will have celebrated this very special occasion. Congratulations to all and thanks to the teachers and parents who guided them. World Youth Day
Parishioners and their friends did a great job in raising funds to help support our two young pilgrims, Luke Neely and Karen Brown, who are travelling to Krakow, Poland in July for the World Youth Day. They’ll join hundreds of thousands of young people from all around the world will join together to greet Pope Francis and be inspired by this spiritual journey. Mission at St Benedict’s
In June we will be holding a Mission at St Benedict’s Parish. Led by a team from Ireland, the Mission will be introduced to parishioners on the weekend of 11th-12th of June and will begin on the evening of 13th June, continuing through the rest of that week. The Mission gives all of us an opportunity to experience renewal and grow in our faith. 50th Wedding anniversary
