CELEBRATING 160 YEARS OF
FAITH COMMUNITY IN THE HAWKESBURY

WELCOME

We welcome you to the Parish of Richmond, the largest geographical Parish in the Parramatta Diocese, encompassing/comprising St Monica's Richmond,  St Gregory's Kurrajong and St John of God North Richmond. Embracing our rich heritage and faith tradition and grounded in the love of Christ we strive through our deeds to bring about the kingdom of God in Faith, Hope & Charity.

The original foundation stone for St Monica's was laid in January 1859 and we are proud to have families in their seventh and eighth generations still active in our Parish.

 

WE ENDEAVOUR TO BE:

A living and nurturing community, expressing Christ's presence among us
A nourishing community of faith and prayer
A welcoming community of hospitality and outreach
A compassionate community of healing and pastoral care

WEEKLY MASS TIMES

BOOKINGS FOR ALL MASSES ARE ESSENTIAL AND NUMBERS WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED.

FAITH CONVERSATIONS

In the coming year we would like to offer parishioners ongoing opportunities for faith conversations and faith formation. We have planned these for every second Wednesday of the month. You’re invited to come together in fellowship to be part of a discussion and conversation about faith.

God bless you all.

GARDENS AROUND OUR CHURCHES

Many parishioners contribute greatly to the gardens around St Monica’s & St Gregory’s. A sincere thanks to one and all.

MORE HELP IS NEEDED.

Even just to water one garden or to assist with some weeding. We desperately need three parishioners who will share the task of cutting hedges as required.

Please contact Mary McGuiness or the Parish Office if you can assist.
Together Everyone Achieves More.

Also, if anyone has any spare rakes, shovels, forks, hand tools, (large and small) which you no longer need, we could put them to good use in the Parish! Any contributions will be gratefully received.
