We will start our lessons at 3 pm and I would like to ask for your prayers and support during these sessions to ensure the children and their families feel welcomed and part of the community. I would like the chairs on the right side of the Altar to be reserved for the children so we can all sit together as per usual.  The children could also do the offertory during these Masses.

Please download the following form, fill it in, and give it to Fr. John or Lorretta as soon as you can. Please also submit a copy of your child’s Baptism certificate.
