Welcome to St Joan of Arc Catholic Parish, Haberfield.
Check our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/StJoanofArcParish for the YouTube link for Sunday Mass (recorded on Saturday 5.00pm)
Please note three important happenings –
First: Sound the Alarm for Climate Change
Join your fellow St Joan of Arc parishioners as we gather with our fellow Christians in Haberfield to participate in the Haberfield Christian ‘Sound the Alarm for Climate Change’ event on Sunday 17 October.
This moment is a kairos moment for all Christians to rise up in unanimity to support audacious targets to save our common home, “the earth, our home” (Laudato Si, 21). This is putting into action our Catholic Social Teaching with the first Laudato Si Action Goal being:
Response to the Cry of the Earth, which calls us to equitably address climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecological sustainability.
We are moved to action following our World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation and celebrating the Season of Creation from 1 September to 4 October.
On Sunday 17 October, we will gather outside St Joan of Arc church for prayer at 11.45 am and then walk along Dalhousie Street to join other Haberfield Christians at St David’s for a declaration at noon.
