2017-2018 Annual General Meeting

The Parish AGM, held over from November 2017, will be held in the Parish Centre after Sunday Mass, 4th February 2018.

The AGM is an opportunity for the St Aloysius community to reflect on the events of the past year ask questions to clarify any matters.

It is also a time to raise issues of concern which can be considered by the parish assembled.

This post will be amended if and as any reports are received so that they can be read before the meeting.

Australia Day 2018

Many parishioners came to Australia Day mass last Friday, 26th January 2018, and stayed for a magnificent morning tea spread out in the Parish Centre.

It was a day to celebrate, and thank God for the peace and stability of our beautiful nation.

  Roma shows the flag.     Enjoying morning tea afterwards.

An added delight was the fact that 26th January is also Republic Day for the Indian nation, marking the adoption of the constitution replacing colonial status.
