Our ‘Stories’

Canice Connections header

Connect a face to a name. We invite you to get to understand the diversity and richness in knowing fellow parishioners at St Canice’s.

Various parish gatherings bring many of us together providing a forum not simply to discuss ideas, but just as importantly to get to know each other better. This better equips us also to be a welcoming community of people ready to take on the responsibilities of ‘mission'; do our own little bit to attract new people, to rekindle their faith, and to participate in various Parish activities.

Who are we? Over time, we will build up a rich mosaic of ‘our people’ to share on this page.

Let’s hear from you.

‘The community comes to full knowledge and faith when individuals and groups bring together and share their previously separate stories.’ 
(The Hospitality of God, p. 190)

Here is an OUTLINE to assist you in providing your information in the desired format.
Please send to SWittenoom@degw.com  with a scanned profile photo.

In sending this information, you agree for it to be published along with other parishioners in the ‘Our Stories’ page of the St Canice’s web site.

Faces, places, events and things are powerful forgers of memory. From our earliest days our life’s journey is shaped by the manner in which such memory is formed. A jigsaw of good memory is important not only for individual lives but also for shared community. 

This photo Album of the Women of St Canice’s and our Canice Connections project aim to enhance our shared narrative. It not only provides links to the many aspects of our faith life in the present, but it also records our story over time.
