Our Parish

St Lawrence Martyr is a church in the Roman Catholic tradition where everyone is at home whatever their background.

​We warmly welcome you, and we pray that you experience every encounter with the parish as an encounter with Jesus Christ himself, really present, here and now, in works of Mercy.

His Real Presence is most clearly encountered in the Eucharist and in the other sacraments. The Risen Lord is also present in our numerous ministries and service to those in need.

Our many get-togethers are celebrations of the abiding love of the Lord for His Church. Take a look, come and see.

You are always most welcome in Christ Jesus Risen!

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Roy Farrell

Pastor, St. Lawrence Martyr Catholic Church
