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


Dates and Lessons to be advised - 


Confirmation at St Columba’s and St Philip’s, attracted many positive comments from those present.  Rev. Andrew Doohan VG ( for Bishop Wright ) was assisted at both ceremonies by Mr Chris Lovell, according to a new custom in  M N Diocese. These simple but beautiful liturgies, were further enhanced by the contribution of Ministers of the Word chosen from among the children’s teachers and members of our Sacramental Teams. The next step for these children of both Catholic and state schools, is the preparation course for Eucharist or Holy Communion. The classes for this Sacrament begin on Monday 27 May at Kotara, Tuesday 28 May in Cardiff; and Monday 3 June at Adamstown, with the first of two essential classes.

A vital element of each child’s preparation, is regular attendance at a vigil or Sunday Mass in the weeks leading up to 1st Communion day. These are, June 15 – Kotara (Vigil); Sunday June 23 in Cardiff; Sunday June 30 at Adamstown. Every blessing to the generous team of volunteers who give their time and ability, so generously.

We welcome the ‘First Communion’ children to each of this weekend’s Masses. Preparation classes began this week at Cardiff and Kotara and will commence this coming week at Adamstown. We urge parents to bring their youngsters to Masses, as part of their continuing initiation into parish life and claiming their place in the worshipping community.
