Our Parish

Our Vision

"Through Baptism, we the people of Our Lady Help of Christians Parish are a community centred on Jesus Christ and his Word.

We are uncompromising  in our witness to Gospel values.

We gain life, strength and hope through the celebration of our faith and trust in Jesus,
especially in the Eucharist.

In Jesus, we accept all people
as equal and reach out constantly
to those in need."

Living our Gifts

Loving God,

author of all gifts;
We praise you and thank you for all the gifts you have
entrusted to us.

Pour out your Spirit upon us
So that, true to our baptismal promises
We can build faith communities
Which recognise and promote the gifts in all people
so that we may all share in the mission of Jesus.

Inspire us to be a Church that is welcoming and accepting,
and which sees everyone as an expression of Christ.
May our faith communities nurture and commission all
Members to live our particular gifts as a reflection and
imitation of Jesus’ life.

Give us the courage to be the light of welcome
in the darkness of exclusion,
a voice of gentleness in the wilderness of the unheard
and an outstretched hand of love to those longing for
