St Andrew’s Feast Day Celebration- Sunday, 26th November 2023

Parish Patron St Andrew’s Feast Day Celebration

Sunday (26th November) at the 9:00am Mass, we welcomed Bishop Emeritus Justin Bianchini who was the main celebrant at the Parish Patron Feast Day of St Andrew’s Mass and the Feast of Christ the King.  We are thankful that Bishop Bianchini was able to celebrate this special Mass for us as he was unable to do so in 2022, due to having had COVID-19 at the time.

Following the Mass, the Parish Social Committee and St Andrew’s CPS hosted a Morning Tea (the scheduled Sausage Sizzle was cancelled due to a fire ban).  Thank you to All who were able to join us in celebrating our Parish Patron Feast.

Our Parish Prayer to St Andrew, the Apostle

O Glorious Saint Andrew,

You were the first to recognize and follow the ‘Lamb of God’.

With your friend St John, (John the Baptist), You remained with Jesus for that first day, for your entire life, and now throughout eternity.

As you led your brother Saint Peter to Christ and many others after him, draw us also to Christ too.

Teach us to lead others to Jesus, solely out of love for HIM and dedication in HIS service.

Help us to learn the lesson of the Cross and to carry our daily crosses without complaint, so that they may carry us to JESUS.

St. Andrew, also known as Andrew the Apostle, was a Christian Apostle and the older brother to St. Peter.

According to the New Testament, Andrew was born in the village of Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee during the early first century. Much like his younger brother, Simon Peter, Andrew was also a fisherman. Andrew’s very name means strong and he was known for having good social skills.
