Program for August, September and October 2018

Dear Parishioners,

This year we are sending our Newsletter to coincide with the 15 days of August and other Feast days in the next few months. It is a great opportunity to ask God’s blessings on each other through the Virgin Mary. This means trying to live our Faith and asking forgiveness from God and each other so that we can receive God’s Grace.

Our Annual Family Dance and Raffle Drawing is on the 13th of October 2018 at The Palais, Leichhardt. A big thank you to our existing sponsors and also feel free to put your hand up to help with future sponsorship. You are welcome to start booking your seat or table. We would greatly appreciate early bookings.



This year our Parish is helping to reopen St George Monastery, Yellow Rock (Springwood), since it has been closed for 5 years after the fires. There will be a major fundraiser at St John’s Parish Parramatta on Sunday 4th November 2018 at 5pm involving all Parishes. Please come and help.

Our journey together has been a blessing. May we continue to have humility and obedience to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to do His will in our Parish and our lives.

Thank you again for your help and may the Lord bless you all.
Fr Constantine.

Car Parking
Parishioners are requested to be mindful of neighbours, and respectful of nature strips when parking in and around the church grounds. Those vehicles that are illegally parked will be fined by the local council.


Announcement from St Andrews Theological College regarding the vocation of priesthood. We are privileged in Sydney to have the Theological College here in Sydney. We wish to encourage young people to study Theology to become Priests and Teachers. We have a real mission here not to be caught up in materialism, Technology and Syncretism in today’s society. Dedication to God and to service to our fellow human beings breaks these barriers.

To find out about subscribing to the college's journal (Phronema) and also the latest upcoming events, particularly in terms of attending guest lectures, courses and symposia, please visit the St Andrews Theological College website.
