HOLY WEEK 

How can you help our Parish prepare for Holy Week?  Actually to best way is if you prepare spiritually, with prayer and repentance.  We would however also be grateful for some practical help:

  • On Saturday 1 April, from 9am till noon, we will be thoroughly cleaning our Church and gardens
  • On Saturday 8 April, after the Liturgy, so from 10am till about noon, we need help to make about 800 bundles and crosses to give out on Palm Sunday
  • On Holy Friday, 14 April, after the morning service, so from 10am till about 2pm, we need hep to decorate the tomb of our Lord with flowers.

Program of services   This can be found on this webpage – go to “Church Services” and then “April 2017 Church Services”

Palm Sunday Luncheon  This will be held after the Liturgy on Sunday 9 April.  Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children.  During this luncheon we will present the plans of the new Church.

Useful Hint  The wait and queue for Holy Communion on Holy Saturday is usually very long.  The wait is a lot shorter at the Liturgies on Holy Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Of course the most important aspect of Holy Communion is to be well prepared: with prayer, repentance, Confession, not having any grudge against anyone, fervent participation during the Liturgy.


ENGLISH LITURGIES are held in our Church once a month, our next one will be on Wednesday 26 April 2017, 7 – 8.30pm


BIBLE STUDY is held every Tuesday, 7.15 – 8.30pm, (except for on weeks when there is an English Liturgy)


KIDS FUN DAY  These are held during school holidays on a Wednesday.  The next one will be on Wednesday 19 April, 1am – 1pm
