Mission Statement

St. Monica's Parish, originally established to meet the needs of a people recovering from war, has ministered since then to our changing community.

We who choose St. Monica's Roman Catholic Parish, are challenged by Scripture and inspired by the Holy Spirit:

  • To come together to celebrate in word and sacrament our faith in Jesus Christ
  • To recognise the dignity of each person
  • To appreciate the gifts each individual brings to our community
  • To celebrate the diversity that various small communities bring to our parish family
  • To work for justice and peace in our church and in society;
  • To have a particular compassion for young, elderly, poor and disadvantaged people, while affirming the equality of all

In these ways we strive to live the words of Scripture:

This is what God asks of you, only to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God.
(Micah 6:8)
