Parish Contact List update: We are currently in the process of updating our Parish Contact List. If you or your family have recently moved, or acquired a new phone number or email address it is important to let us know so we can keep our records up to date. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Mob: 0409 049 442

Not receiving emails from Fr Jeff? Each Sunday and Wednesday, an email containing the Sunday Service and then a Wednesday reflection is being sent to everyone on our email list. In some cases parishioners believe they are not receiving them. We have found that in many cases the email has gone to their ‘spam’ or ‘junk’ file. This happens with some email providers. If you haven’t received an email from the parish or Fr Jeff on these days, check those other folders and you will probably find it.
ST PAUL’S PANTRY desperately needs food.
Please keep collecting your donations of tinned and non-perishable food items.
You will be able to bring them in to the church when services resume.
