Please see below a message from Father Noy about the visit from Archbishop Mark Coleridge next week.
We are only one week away from the pastoral visit of Archbishop Mark Coleridge. He will be visiting our parish from the morning of Friday 25th October, with his visit culminating in the Centenary Mass and celebrations at St Patrick’s Church in Laidley. Archbishop Mark will celebrate all Masses, confer the Sacrament of Confirmation and engage with parishioners through the various meetings that have been scheduled. When you have the opportunity to meet the Archbishop, please refer to him as Archbishop Mark or Your Grace. Please make this weekend a priority ... this is our first Pastoral visit as Our Lady of the Valley Parish, so invite your family and friends, any parishioners who have moved away and come celebrate!
