Liturgy and Prayer
We enact our mission through liturgy and prayer opportunities that form, inform and transform our faith.
‘Beside Restful Waters’ – Charismatic Prayer Group
This group has been meeting in St Bernard’s Church each Wednesday after the 7.00 pm Mass, since 1989. Restful Waters (Psalm 23:2) is one of 44 prayer groups in the Archdiocese affiliated with “Joshua Prayer Communities and Ministries” which comes under the patronage of the Archbishop. We commence with prayer and praise followed by scripture sharing, teachings or meditation. Contact Maureen 3172 9248.
This group is responsible for coordinating the various liturgical ministries, for the preparation of liturgy and the liturgical environment of our parish churches and for in-service opportunities. We are always seeking members to assist in the preparation of the Liturgy. Gifts needed are varied. Contact the parish office.

This time of prayer is available during the school term to all children, preschool and upwards, at the 8.30 am Mass at St Catherine’s and the 9.30 am Mass at St Bernard’s on Sunday, in the Community Centre. Check the Parish Newsletter.
There is an extensive music ministry across the whole parish. The wealth and depth of musical expertise caters for all groups and styles of liturgical music. Our musicians and vocalists are coordinated by Danuta Cleland. She collaborates with Jaye Barros at St Catherine’s Church and Jim Vogt at St Martin’s Church. There are music groups for each of the seven Masses celebrated each weekend across the parish. Our parish boasts a formal parish choir who leads the assembly on formal and special liturgical occasions. For more information call Danuta on 07 3343 5939.
