Faith Enrichment

For further details contact the Parish Office on 9364 1120.

Continual development and enrichment of our faith will transform us to be more like Christ to others. The parish community provides the following opportunities and resources for faith enrichment.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

"The Visit to the Blessed Sacrament. is a great treasure of the Catholic Faith. It nourishes social love and gives us opportunities for adoration and thanksgiving." (John Paul II)

The practice of daily adoration of the Blessed Sacrament began at Regina Coeli church in 1992. Now many parishioners and members of other parishes spend time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at the new Regina Coeli Chapel in the new St Benedict's Church.

It is requested that at least one person is present with the Blessed Sacrament during exposition. Addition adorers are always welcome.

The Blessed Sacrament is available to us from 10am - 5pm Monday - Friday.

If you are a young adult, you may wish to share the experience with other young adults every Wednesday evening at the " Six30 Holy Hour". http://cym.com.au/six30.php

Faith Enrichment Program

Programs are flexible and may include readings, discussion and prayer. The CaFE program and Celebrate Love are examples of some of the programs which have been held.

During Lent the Stations of the Cross will be on Wednesdays at 7.00pm.

We have been blessed by such a rich program of events over the last few years. Many thanks to the Parish Pastoral Council and the many dedicated organisers.

Marian Movement Cenacle

The Marian Movement Cenacle meets every Thursday at St Benedict's church after the 9.00 a.m. Mass. Members pray the Rosary and consecrate themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pilgrim Statue

Parishioners are encouraged to have the statue of Our Blessed Lady in their homes and pray the Rosary for one week each year. Rosary prayer sheets are available.

If you wish to have Our Lady's statue in your home please contact Colleen Geldenhuys on 9364 1120.

Prayer/Rosary Groups

The Rosary groups meet weekly to pray the Rosary. Anyone is welcome to attend.

The Mary Mother of Sorrows Prayer group meets weekly on a Thursday during school terms. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Group members come together from many different parishes. They seek to sit quietly with the Lord and leave behind the business as they contemplate His Word and how to apply it in their daily lives. They share their faith journey with each other. The meeting usually concludes with refreshment.

The group invites you to join.
