Mustard Seeds - Children’s Liturgy
We have a junior and senior children’s liturgy during the Sunday 10.15am Mass at St John’s Church, and a junior liturgy during the 8.30am Mass at St Francis to help the children develop in their faith at an age appropriate level. If any parents are interested in volunteering to present the children’s liturgy sessions on a rostered basis, please contact the relevant coordinator above.

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
