Letter of Welcome to Prospective Parishioners

Our combined Catholic Parishes of Our Lady of the Rosary, Kyneton and St Mary Magdalen, Trentham welcome you into our communities.
The benefits of older Parishes like Kyneton and Trentham are that our communities take pride in the wonderful heritage of our beautiful Churches which serve as welcoming beacons in a sometimes inhospitable environment, and that are the home of our Celebration of Mass and other ceremonies.
We look forward to meeting you and making you feel at one with us.

Our Combined Prayer


God our Father, 
We are one Church in praise, 
prayer and service. 
Send the Spirit to us, 
members of the one Body of Christ. 
We ask for vision and courage 
as we grow 
in Faith, in Hope, and in Love. 
Thank you for the gifts of yesterday. 
Today and tomorrow give us gifts of 
grace, unity and peace. 
Make us signs to our world 
of fidelity to your Word. 
With Mary the Mother of the Church and 
Mary Magdalen 
we ask this through Christ our Lord
