The Parish’s Family Groups operate under the guidelines of the Passionist Family Group Movement (http://www.pfgm.org).
Members comprise single people and couples, with or without children. The groups are for people of all ages and are an easy way for non-Catholics and newcomers to feel part of our Parish community.
Established in the Parish in 1988, our Family groups celebrated 30 years of operation in 2018.
