Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
St. Declan’s Parish is a welcoming,
supportive and inclusive community of believers
inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus
who gather around the Eucharistic table.
We are called to spread the Gospel
through word and action
and are seeking to reflect Jesus’ compassion
with our local community and beyond.

Exploring: Life, Faith & Meaning
Alpha is a series of sessions that delve into life’s big questions from a Christian perspective.
In 2017 Alpha commenced at St Declan's Parish.
The second Alpha course began March this year and concluded 11th May.
Here's news on the Alpha Course....
The Alpha course is starting again very soon at St Declan’s.
Alpha Days: Fridays, 10am; begins 27 July
Alpha Nights: Thursdays, 7pm; begins 9 August
Follow-up to Alpha, the participants are invited to Cana which is held on a fortnightly basis.
We continue to keep all those participating in Alpha and in Cana in our prayers. May their journey continue to be nourished by their faith through the Holy Spirit.
Stay tuned for the next Alpha! For more information please contact the office.
