Dine with Heart 2019

Raising money for our Missions Dining Hall

Our Parish Dine with Heart Soup Evening was a resounding success with 70 parishioners and school families and friends gathering to enjoy a bowl or two of warm, nourishing soup on a cold night.

Good company, a warm atmosphere and plenty of chatter was enjoyed by all. It was wonderful that we were able to host such a great night with all the proceeds going to Sacred Heart Mission Meals Program.


Together we raised $1,676.50 We are grateful to everyone who came and donated to this most worthy cause.

Plenary council

June 2019

A Plenary Council is a formal meeting of the bishops and other representatives of all the dioceses and eparchies of the Catholic Church in Australia. Its purpose is to discern what God is asking of us in Australia at this present time.


While the church should be asking that question continually, a Plenary Council is a particularly graced instrument for seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance. And it has the authority to make church laws on the results of its discernment.

Sacred Heart Memorial

August 18 2018

On Sunday 19 August 2018 we dedicated the Sacred Heart Memorial.
“We Remember” is a tribute to those who have died in our community. In erecting this memorial, we hold them forever in our hearts. 
“We Remember”, depicts a small gathering holding their friend who has died. In this act of intimacy, through their grief, in some ways they hold each other. The figures are close with each other. They hold the body of their friend through the interweaving of their hands and bodies. This is an experience of deep intimacy in a place vulnerability.
