The date for the start of the building of the Replacement Church at Holy Rosary has been agreed as the 23rd March 2009.   The project should take an estimated 6 months to complete. Thus the Replacement Church should be opened sometime in Sept/Oct of this year.  It is great to see the project finally getting to this stage and thanks to all those involved. Please read the weekly news letter for updates on the project as it progresses.


With the commencement of the Replacement Church this means that the current church will be closed and demolished. The Last Mass in the current church building will take place at 10.30am on 17th March 2009, St Patrick’s Day.
