Welcome

A message from our Parish Priest Canon David Ryan

St John's has a great history over 150 years of Catholic faith, as well as a great modern mission to bring the Gospel of Christ in the heart of vibrant city that has a multicutural and international character. Our beautiful church is an oasis of prayer and healing. Its doors are always open especially providing a welcome for all people in all situations.

I would like to welcome you as a new parishioner from where ever you have come from. I hope you will want to play an active part in our community life using the gifts that God has given you through your baptismal calling. This website will help you to explore the varied ministries and to assist the building of relationships and fostering the growing Christian community. Whatever your age or background feel that you are at home and very much at one with your community.

Our Parish Handbook provides lots of usefeul information about the church, the parish, ministries, schools and much more. You can download it here.
