CONGRATULATIONS to Emily McCarry and  Roberto Izzo who were married at St Thomas Aquinas Church yesterday.

PLEASE BE ASSURED that we are a ‘Child Friendly Parish’and we love to see children coming to Mass.  However, it would be greatly appreciated, should your child need a toy that this be a soft toy and not plastic or metal which can make noise and subsequently may distract peoples’ attention during Mass.  Many thanks.
