On behalf of Assistant Priest, Fr Israel and the St Andrew’s community I would like to welcome you to our multicultural community. We come from different parts of the world. We have our unique characteristics and identity formed by our culture and society. We are all different. Yet we are the same in many ways. Our true identity is that we are God’s beloved children. God loves us unconditionally regardless of our colour, language, gender, culture and race. In God’s eyes we are all the same.
When we gather together at mass, we are one body. We have one faith, one Lord, one Baptism. There is no longer Australian, American, European, Asian or African. We are one family of God, one community of believers. Each of us is important in the community. We have something to share. Just your presence is precious and valuable.
Come and celebrate our gifts of faith, our differences and uniqueness. Let us journey together in this life towards our eternal goal. St. Andrew’s Parish is your home until we all meet again in heaven, our eternal home.
Fr Robert Carrillo
