Scripture and the Church's history give us many examples of the great impact when a whole community undertakes prayer and fasting together.
JOIN US FOR A MONTH OF PRAYER AND FASTING to be held in parishes, schools and homes across the nation during the month of October 2017. We pray that our country's leaders will truly understand the importance of marriage and that they will exercise their role in a way which supports and protects God's plan for marriage and family life.

THE MARRIAGE LAW POSTAL SURVEY has 2 weeks to go.  There are effectively 2 weeks to go in the Marriage Law Survey.  The outcome of the vote will have a significant impact on our society.  It is important for those who believe in traditional marriage to have their say without feeling intimidated.  If you have not done so already please fill in your survey form and return it by post to the ABS by the end of October to be sure it is delivered before November 7.  For more information: marriagesurvey.abs.gov.au
