What a night to remember!
Thank you to all the parishioners who joined us last Saturday evening for our Parish Christmas Dinner! We wish to thank all the volunteers who were involved and all those who brought food and sweets to share!
Last Friday, 29th July 2022, we had the Ritual Mass for the Conferral of the Sacrament of Confirmation. We are very fortunate to have Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP confer our candidates. Fr Pawel Kopczynski, who concelebrated the Mass, expressed his gratitude to all those involved with the preparation of candidates, and to all the teachers and family members who joined the celebration.
On behalf of Fr Pawel Kopczynski, we thank the wonderful Dominican Sisters who led our Reflection and Reconciliation Evening for our Confirmation Candidates and their families last Wednesday, July 20. It was lovely to see our candidates fully engaged in prayer and adoration, supported by Fr George, Fr Greg, Fr Emmanuel and Fr Steve who[…..]
The menALIVE mens weekend is an opportunity for men to explore what makes them fully alive.
About this event
During the weekend, the menALIVE team will share about their lives, the challenges they face and the hope they have discovered in seeking to walk this journey with GOD.
Perhaps the most important thing the weekend offers is space for men to reflect and opportunities to share with one another about themselves and their lives.

Dear Fr. Pawel Kopczynski CSMA, St. Kevin’s Parishioners, friends and other contributors.
It is good news once again, for the pupils, teachers and parents of Pere Achte Primary School in Uganda, that 4 classrooms have been renovated. The potholed floor, shabby walls and broken windows and doors are a history for the community. All this has been realized from the generosity of the Christian community and friends of St. Kevin Parish, Eastwood, Sydney in Australia.
On behalf of the Michaelite Community in the Pacific Province and myself, I would like to wish everyone at St. Kevin’s Parish and all visitors, a happy and holy Easter and a joy-filled time with family and loved ones. Alleluia!
Blessing of the Food/Święconka
Blessing of the food for Easter breakfast is one of the most enduring Polish traditions. Baskets containing a sampling of Easter food: cold meat, boiled eggs, different kinds of bread/cake and other types of food that we would like to have on Easter.
Parishioners are welcome to bring their own basket of food.
The basket is traditionally lined with a white linen and decorated with evergreens. Poles or Polish people, take special pride in preparing and decorating their Easter basket. Looking at the beautiful food baskets prepared by parishioners brings a special joy to this event. The baskets are lined up on the table in front of the altar. The priest then says a special prayer to bless the baskets and sprinkles each basket with Holy Water.
