"There are many different gifts, but it is always the same Spirit. There are many different ways of serving, but it is always the same Lord. There are many different forms of activity, but in everybody it is the same God who is at work in them all." 1 Corinthians 12,4-6

Ministry in our Parish

As St Paul states, there are a variety of gifts and a variety of services and activities to be found within a Christian community. We are blessed at Holy Family Parish to have many groups and ministries, making use of our parishioner’s unique gifts, providing the types of services and activities, that St Paul speaks of.

Our ministries are broken into 5 main groups: Worship, Evangelisation, Social Apostolate, Temporalities and Youth Apostolate.


Many people are actively involved in all sorts of ministries within our Parish. If you would like to share your time and talents, whether the service that you can offer be large or small, you will be warmly welcomed.

Please see the Volunteer Booklet that outlines the opportunities for involvement that are currently available.
