MESSAGE FROM THE PRIEST
As we prepare to celebrate the great events of our salvation, I want to implore you to approach this holy season with hearts and minds that are worthy of the love that Christ showed us, in his great sacrifice. Let us eschew all forms of hatred, gossips, rumours and ill feelings. Let us allow Christ to be rooted in all of our actions.

at the pool area.
St. Philomena's was started in 1895 by Mother Mary of the Cross and after many obstacles, eventually planted its roots in Sydenham in 1975. Today it is a well established home which lies in a quite
