Masses are said in our three churches throughout the week. Below are some of the roles parishioners take on to help the clergy at Mass. Could you offer your services in some way? If so, the Parish Office would love to hear from you.
We have an enthusiastic team of adults, young people and children from Year 4 upwards who serve at the altar for Sunday and weekday Masses.
Many of the servers meet to learn, practise, pray and have fun together on the 1st Saturday of the month, 10.30am-11.30am in the parish rooms at St Richard’s.
They may become members of the Guild of St Stephen, the altar servers’ guild, and earn their GSS medals.
To serve is to reign. (Motto of the Guild of St Stephen)
Our three choirs' ministry is to lead the congregation in the sung worship of God at Mass and other services. They combine their love of God and love of music and would warmly welcome new members, whatever their musical knowledge or experience.
Choir practices are held at:
- Our Lady of the Assumption, before Sunday Mass & monthly on Friday evenings.
- St Peter's, Monday, 7pm
- St Richard's, Thursday, 7pm
Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord. (Psalm 94:1)
