All Saints Blackbutt South — Faith Communities of Adamstown, Cardiff and Kotara

Entering into 40 days of Retreat ... Lent is a time of Self Examination of Consience

Let us find time to pray with our Family and Children during this Lent ……Let us find a quite time to look at the Holy Cross to meditate upon the Price Our Lord Paid for us!  

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” St. Francis of Assisi  

Lent offers us all a very special opportunity to grow in our relationship with God and to deepen our commitment to a way of life, rooted in our baptism.  In our busy world, Lent provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon our patterns, to pray more deeply, experience sorrow for what we've done! 

“Never stop doing the little things for others; sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their Heart.”

Lent—Easter 2021 - you can download our Easter dates and timetable on our Lent to Easter page.   

With Love and prayers in the Lord,

Fr.Joseph Figurado 


Year of St Joseph 

Dear Parishioners, Principals, APs, RECs, Teachers and Parents


I understand the reality that we are living a “rollercoaster” life, especially at the beginning of the school year!! The most popular word, after COVID-19 I heard the word  “Busy”.  In this “busy”  running there is Lent, Synod, parish life, family life, school life, activities, meetings, zoom, Vaccine and scheduled pattern of life, exercise, etc.!!

I need extra set of wheels fitted under my feet!!  My past week was a sensational Marathon!!  So, think of this as a prelude!!  Now the main Trailer!  I kindly request all our parishioners, parents and school communities to become aware of our Parish’s Synodal Process.  Feel free to join our zoom and direct preparatory sessions hosted by our parish Synod representatives and come forward to take part in these sessions.

Further, on March 19, The Solemnity of St Joseph, Spouse of Mary, would be celebrated as an essential Solemnity in this YEAR OF ST JOSEPH.  As I have already indicated, the weekend Masses 21/03/2021 would be marked as Parish Joint Celebrations of St Joseph’s Day, St Patrick’s Day and Family Day.

Given these above festivities there will be an ART competition from 2.00pm to 5.00 pm at Kotara.  We are inviting all our art teachers and previous art competition groups to come along and help in this endeavour. Gifts and Certificates from the parish will be announced in following bulletins
