Parish Life 5 Sep 2021

Dear Parishioners,

This Sunday we honour our dads on Fathers’ Day. Research is showing more clearly than ever that the contribution of fathers to families is unique and irreplaceable. The Fathering Project is an organisation based in West Australia, whose research findings state that: While mothers have a significant influence on their child’s health, academic, social and emotional outcomes, after accounting for this, fathers have a unique and diverse role in improving outcomes for their child” May the Lord abundantly bless our fathers. Fr Nicolas Maurice
