If you looking for a traditional, classic and timeless style of worship then you will love our 10 a.m. Sunday Morning Mass. It’s a wonderful way to start your week with God.

Professor Keith Ward, a renowned philosopher, theologian and priest, will be the guest preacher at the Patronal Festival Mass on Saturday, 24th June at 11:00 a.m. We also invites the attendees to a finger buffet after the Mass.
