  • Silent Retreat - Saturday 10 NOV 9:30am - 3:00pm

    Winha-nga-rra: Listen, Hear, Reflect.

    Come and take time to listen, hear and reflect in the Wiradjuri tradition. Similar in meaning to dadirri from Ngan' gikurunggurr and Ngen' gwiumirri languages of the Aboriginal people of the Daly River region. 

    Walk your country and if you listen carefully it tell you what it knows, what you need to know and what it needs from you.   

  • Anglicare Food Collection - Saturday 18th August 9:00am

    Our parish collect items for Anglicare Mission House in Fitzroy. This food is then distributed to needy people in the inner city area.

    Our Annual Collection expands the scope of our giving and enables more people to participate in the donation of food for which there is an ever increasing need.

    This year there was an excellent response to the appeal.

    Many thanks to Jill O’Shea and Richard Carter

  • St Oswald's Day - Sunday 5th August 2018

    We celebrated St. Oswald's day on Sunday 5th August 2018. Our speaker this year was to be Rev. Dr. Don Saines who is a senior lecturer in Systemic Theology and Director if the Ministry Education Centre at Melbourne Trinity Theological College.

    Unfortunately Dr Saines was taken ill and could not share the day with us.

    As always it was a great opportunity to catch up with people. Thanks to Cheryl Adams and the team who organised the event!
