Glory be to the Father, Who by His almighty power and love created me, making me in the image and likeness of God.
Glory be to the Son, Who by His Precious Blood delivered me from hell, and opened for me the gates of heaven.
Glory be to the Holy Spirit, Who has sacrificed me in the sacrament of Baptism, and continues to sanctify me by the graces I receive daily from His bounty.
Glory be to the Three adorable Persons of the Holy Trinity now and forever.

Each year our parish hold a sacred Fire on the eve of St John the Baptist to dispose of spiritual goods that are damaged and need to be disposed of. As Catholics have done for centuries before us, we build a fire and spend time with our family as we remember this great saint who courageously preached the coming of the Messiah and ask him for his intercession. There is a special blessing for the vigil fire and afterwards we can enjoy toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate!
This year, we will be hosting the City of Armadale community trailer with outdoor family games, BBQ and TV. The whole parish and school community is invited to attend on Friday 23 June from 5pm to 7pm. Sausage sizzle: $2 Drinks: $1 & real coffee will be available for purchase.
The event is FREE but please book tickets via trybooking using the QR code or https://www.trybooking.com/CILFB for catering purposes. The fire will be lit behind the Church and the area will be restricted. All parking will be in the front carpark.
