This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad.
Jesus said: “Remain in my love.”
Jesus said: “Come, follow me!”
For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
Jesus said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Jesus said: “If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; cut off from me you can do nothing.”
Welcome to St Agatha’s Parish Web Site.
St Agatha’s is a diverse community of Catholic believers, drawn together through our Baptism to help each other grow closer to God. We foster a warm and friendly environment in which people are nourished by the Word and the Eucharist. We are guided by the Holy Spirit to spread God’s kingdom on earth through our prayer, words and actions. We promote love, peace, equality, justice, forgiveness and compassion and we seek opportunities to help others, especially through interacting with, and responding to, those who are in any way poor and disadvantaged.
Would you like a deeper union with Jesus Christ through the Sacraments? We have a special program that discusses our Catholic faith, develops people spiritually and prepares them for this.

Quote of the week.
Lord God, redeemer and inspiration of souls,
in the Blessed Virgin Mary, Star of the Sea,
you have provided a light in the storms of life.
By her favour and prayer,
grant that we may set a course through these times
to reach our safe haven in heaven with you.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
“Mary, Star of the Sea,
must be followed in faith and morals
lest we capsize amidst the storm-tossed waves of the sea.
She will illumine us to believe in Christ,
born of her for the salvation of the world”.
(Paschasius Radbertus d.865)
