No one misses out at Our Lady church

Stirling Times - - News - Bre­anna In­fer­rera

OUR Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Dou­ble­view has en­cour­aged all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to visit and use the fa­cil­i­ties at its new parish cen­tre.

The com­plex com­prises the Rosary Com­mu­nity Cen­tre and Do­mini­can Pri­ory, a res­i­dency for the parish priests.

Father Peter Hoang, who was ap­pointed parish priest in Septem­ber, said the new build­ing was an im­por­tant re­source for the parish to bring peo­ple to­gether.

“If you want to cre­ate a sense of com­mu­nity, you need a place for peo­ple to come and share their sto­ries,” he said.

“Every week we have some­thing dif­fer­ent; for ex­am­ple, the first week of the month on Satur­day evening we have cheese and wine for those who come, the se­cond week we have pizza for the youth, the third and fourth we have morn­ing teas.

“It caters for a lot of dif­fer­ent groups. It doesn’t fo­cus on just one end; no one misses out.”

The backyard pa­tio of the cen­tre con­tains a life­size statue of Saint Do­minic, rep­re­sent­ing the his­tory of the Do­mini­can pres­ence in WA and a trib­ute to the saint who ac­tively prayed the Rosary.
