Welcome! If you are a visitor we hope that our website will be a reflection of the wonderful and Spirit-filled community of St Agatha’s. We hope and pray that your visit will encourage you to be drawn more deeply into God’s presence and his love through active engagement in our parish.
If you are a parishioner, it’s good to touch base with you again. We hope that you find all the information you need to become more fully engaged in our faith community and that you too, will be drawn ever more deeply into the loving arms of God.
St Agatha’s Catholic community is a place where you can truly belong; where you can truly be at home. Whether you are on the fringes of Catholicism, whether you are just starting out on the journey of Catholic life, or whether you’ve been Catholic all your life: we value you as a person. Our parish offers many opportunities for you to grow and develop your potential, to discover your giftedness and God-given talents and encourages you to reach out to others to do the same. Whilst we realize the importance of the development and nurture of the individual, we also place equal importance on community: of standing together as a family through all of the joys, struggles and challenges that each day brings. As a well-known proverb states ‘shared joy is double joy, shared sorrow is half a sorrow’; we support each other throughout our lives and stages of faith.
At the heart of St. Agatha’s Parish is Jesus Christ living and active among us. Above all it is in celebration of the Holy Mass and in the other Sacraments that we encounter the Lord Jesus. This loving encounter in spirit and truth spills over into an active love and service of one another and all whom we meet. This reaches a high point in our participation in the “New Evangelisation” that “the kingdom may come.” Prayer and especially Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the other fountainhead from which all the spiritual energy of our Parish flows and bears the fruits of the Holy Spirit among us.
