Prayer Groups and Prayer Opportunities

 

We have many different prayer groups in our Parish and hopefully there is a group to suit everyone.

All are welcome to join any of these groups.  To pray is to draw closer to God and to draw from him all that we need to meet the challenges of each day.

Details of the various groups and meeting times are listed below.  Any enquiries can be directed to the Parish Office 9276 8500 or email ijparish@carmelite.com
