2021 Dempsey Medal Award

This year, we would like to congratulate our Dempsey Medal recipient, Deirdre Macedo, for her years of dedicated service to our parish community. She has been volunteering in different ministries in our parish for many years including St Vincent De Paul, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Society, Catechism, Rosary and Prayer Groups.

A Note of Appreciation from Fr Fabius

Dear Friends: Fr Martin & St. Kevin’s Parishioners, Eastwood Uniting Church Congregation, and other contributors.

My sincere heartfelt thanks to you all.

Using the words of Pope Francis: “…Charity should convey the warmth of an embrace of the Heavenly Father to people, especially the poor and marginalized. The world needs more people who contribute selflessly for human progress …” It is imperative, therefore, to express our gratitude; precisely affirming the words of Cicero: “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”

Welcome back to all faithful parishioners of St Kevin’s Eastwood!

Since the NSW government has agreed to further ease the restrictions on churches and places of worship from 1st June 2020, allowing up to 50 attendees at a time, subject to distancing requirements, our faithful parishioners, have started their way back to some form of normality when it comes to practicing their faith.
