Catechists
Let us pray for the catechists, summoned to announce the Word of God: may they be its witness, with courage and creativity and in the power of the Holy Spirit.


The Holy Rosary 

December is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. The first 24 days of December fall during the liturgical season known as of Advent and are represented by the liturgical colour purple — a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart. The remaining days of December mark the beginning of the Christmas season. The liturgical colour changes to white or gold — a symbol of joy, purity and innocence.


YOUTH MINISTRY

Advent Games
This year during Advent, St Mary of the Presentation Catholic Church Youth Ministry will be running ADVENT GAMES after the 9am Sunday Mass.  This is great way to finish off this tough year by bringing together our Parish community. It is intended for the children and youth of the Parish, however tea and coffee will be also available for parents. On Sunday 28/11/21 we will start our ADVENT GAMES with Bin Ball. So come along after Sunday Mass during Advent for the fun!
