Parish Groups

The amount of work for four priests in the largest parish in the diocese is extraordinary but it is made easier by the sincere commitment and hard work of the many teams and groups who have volunteered to assist in our mission.

The church is the people of the parish and we are indeed rich in volunteers but are always seeking to spread the good news of our parish through the active mission of volunteering for a special work. Below, there is lsited spme of the most important missions of the church and teams that perform them. If you have any query or expertise in respect of any group we would welcome you to our Parish Office where we may be able to assist.
