Happy 90th birthday

The Emmaus parish helped Monsignor Bob Rice celebrate his 90th birthday last month with a celebratory Mass at Holy Cross Church followed by a parish picnic on Palm Sunday.


Transforming from the inside

In our continuing series on the Interim Diocesan Pastoral Council, we asked Georgia Steller and Tony Roach about their involvement in the Church, why they nominated to be on the Council and their hopes for the future.


History in the making

Beautiful ornate vestments, copies of The Southern Cross dating back to the 1890s and a certificate signed by the first parish priest at Goodwood are just some of the treasures on display in the recently established Emmaus History and Archives Centre. 


Songs of joy

A family that plays together stays together. That’s the advice of Arthur Siow, choirmaster at Holy Cross Church, Goodwood, who sings with three of his five children at Sunday Masses, and at special events in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral.
