To ensure that every voice is heard and views are taken into consideration, the Vicariate synodal team has released a questionnaire.  All parishioners are requested to go to www.avona.org, follow Synod 2023, click on the parish you belong to and fill in the questions asked.  Rest assured, your responses will be kept confidential.    
Only by journeying together and reflecting together on the journey through listening and discernment rooted in the Holy Spirit, will the Church will be able to learn through Her experience.
The Sacrament of Confession has commenced. On weekdays, the priests will be available for confessions from 9am to 12 noon and 6pm to 8.30pm. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays there will be Confessions during all English Obligation Masses. In preparation for the Holy Week, while the priests are available, parishioners are encouraged to utilize this opportunity to make their confessions.
