This week Lindfield-Killara Parish is where you will find the cross until 15 June, when it will move to St Ives.

Plenary 2020

All of our parishes recently received their Plenary 2020 kits, which included a parish Plenary Candle and instructions on discerning local animators. Many of our parish who have active youth ministries also received a youth specific kit. We encourage you all to discern your place in this journey, and if that place is helping to lead others. Please speak with you Parish priest if you would like to become an animator. Training will be provided in August and we hope for many young adult animators who can then assist us then with our end of year Youth forum - not just your local parish.
