The story of Saint Oliver Plunkett takes us to Ireland, where Oliver was born almost 400 years ago. At the time, Catholics faced many challenges to hold onto their faith. Many faced difficulties just to attend mass – some were even forbidden. Many fled to where they could practice their faith freely.

It was during this time that Oliver was sent to Rome for his studies. While Oliver desired to return to his people, it was still not safe for him to return to his home country after he was ordained. So, he remained in Rome and taught as a professor of Theology. It was 22 years before he could return to Ireland, this time as the Archbishop.

When Archbishop Plunkett came back to Ireland, he began a ministry of reform. Over 11 years, Saint Oliver worked tirelessly visiting his people, establishing schools and turning thousands of hearts towards God. He brought renewal to the church, pursuing the church’s mission to continue the work of Christ, helping those in need even when compelled into isolation. Towards the end of his earthly ministry, he was unjustly arrested and condemned for treason. In 1681, he was martyred for the faith at the Tyburn tree which is now the north east corner of Hyde Park/Marble Arch in London. The last Catholic martyr in England.

The parish celebrates its patron in Saint Oliver on July 11, his feast day. He is the patron saint of peace and reconciliation in Ireland.

BAPTISM

Baptism is the beginning of our faith, and foundational to share in the Church's mission. If you're a new parent, you are invited to attend a class to support you in raising your child in the faith.

marriage

Your decision to marry is one of the most important decisions in your life. Know that the Church supports and cares about you and your marriage. Weddings must be booked 6 months ahead.

RECONCILIATION

Confession offers us opportunity to reflect on how we are living our lives. It's our First Reconciliation that teaches us the importance of saying 'sorry' in order to come back to God, and each other.

eucharist

Catholics have been celebrating Holy Communion together for hundreds of years. It represents the pinnacle of our community’s beliefs, as we join and become ‘one body’ in communion with God.

ANOINTING

Call the Parish Office if you have a loved one who is in hospital and in need of anointing or Holy Communion. Parishioners are also invited to volunteer to assist our priests in Extraordinary Ministries to the sick.

FUNERALS

The loss of a loved one is difficult and sometimes overwhelming for family and friends. For assistance in planning a Vigil, Funeral and Committal or Bereavement services, contact the Parish office.
