Please pray for their safe return! Executive president of Aid to the Church in Need, Dr Thomas-Heine Geldern said that the violent abduction of innocent young seminarians is a horrific act. “Two of the victims are not even 20 years old. We appeal to the conscience of their abductors and urge them to release these young men. At the same time we call on all people of goodwill to join us in praying that the four seminarians will soon be freed unharmed.” Dr Heine-Geldern also expressed his sympathy with the families of the abducted young men and for the remaining seminary students. “For years now Nigeria’s Christians have been going through hell, but their faith remains unshaken” he said. ...

Youth Club

An initiative of our diocesan youth worker Tom M. and lead by Paula L. and teachers of St Laurences, the children are informed in the teachings of the Catholic faith and prayer, and they play… and play! An awesome group. They meet twice a term and it is for years 5-6 after school.

Altar Servers

“Dear altar boys and altar girls, the closer you are to the altar, the more you will remember to speak with Jesus in daily prayer; the more you will be nourished by the Word and the Body of the Lord, the better able you will be to go out to others, bringing them the gift that you have received, giving in turn with enthusiasm the joy you have received.

Thank you for serving at the Lord’s altar and for making of this service a real school of learning the faith, and charity toward your neighbour. Thank you also for having begun to respond to the Lord, like the prophet Isaiah, “Here I am. Send me” (IS 6:8).”
