company and support of one another. Several gatherings are organized during the
year. Each one depends on the interest of the members. Events are announced in
our weekly newsletter.
Passionist Family Groups
This is a ministry that began in Sydney in
1972 in the Passionist parish of St. Anthony in the Fields in Terrey Hills. It
is a lively and simple way of bringing together a number of families or
individuals into a “Family Group”. It is a rediscovery of the extended family
in a Christian style. They are asked to meet every month for a low-cost or
no-cost meeting or celebration. We hope that the Family Group will become a
tiny community within the bigger community of our parish. All are welcome.
No-one is excluded.

particularly popular with families who want to connect with other families, and
