Various activities throughout the year serve to bring our parish community closer together. In so doing, we enrich the life of the parish! We are always open to hear from you with possibilities for improving and re-invigorating these connections.
In ‘building our community to enrich parish life’, Canice parishioners benefit from a mutual connection between themselves and others working and contributing to other Ignatian inspired activities. These include:
• Sister parish of Railaco
• Canice Kitchen Volunteers, and Suppliers
• David’s Place
• Jesuit Refugee Service – refugees, and staff of JRS
• St Vincent de Paul Society
• St Vincent’s Girls College
We all have the opportunity to amplify the Ignatian character of this unique parish of St Canice’s. We are a veritable ‘symphony of lives and purposes’.
One of the ways we bring this together is through Canice Connections’, and we embrace this in our Communications.
Ignatius Loyola rejected a monastic lifestyle to follow a spirituality that engages the world.
Pedro Arrupe left a legacy of “men and women for others”, committed to human dignity, the common good, and integration of lay men and women into the Jesuit mission defined as the service of faith and the promotion of justice.
Another of our means of communicating is through photographs. During 2018, we will continue to share photos of special events and other social occasions. Here is a video made up of photos of smiling parishioners from recent times . . . and concluding with reminders of the importance of our relationship with those in the community of our Sister Parish in Railaco, East Timor.
