Welcome to Our Parish
We have a wonderful Parish with a true spirit of community, compassion and care for each other. We are guided by our faith and I am forever grateful to God for the many wonderful gifts we have and the many kind and generous people that are such a key part of our identity as a Church.
In all that we do let us strive to grow in true holiness, opening our hearts to the mystery and wonder of our Lord.
I pray that each of us from the youngest to the most senior members of our community will be filled by the goodness of God.
Everyone is welcome at our parishes of Mater Dei and St Raphael. I invite all who live nearby, have children at the school or who would just like to join us and become part of our community.
May the Lord continue to bless all we do to build the kingdom of God in all aspects of our lives.
Fr Thomas Alukka
