International Family Group Day 2014

                                                    (An annual world-wide event held the first Sunday of May)

International Passionist Family Group Day 2014 was celebrated at the birthplace of the PFGM, St. Anthony in the Fields, Terrey Hills. It was a beautiful autumn day with lovely blue skies, warm temperatures and lots of Family Group people to share our Mass.

At the end of Mass, Mary Ingham and Bede Alexander, on behalf of the PFGM coordinators of the Frenchs Forest Parish, talked briefly about the Family Groups and what they mean to the Parish. Everyone in a Family Group was asked to stand; there were not too many left sitting!.


Family Groups have been a big part of our church of St Anthony’s since 1972 and we were pleased to have in our congregation that day, our founder Fr Peter McGrath CP who stayed on after Mass to take part in the morning tea.

We also had a very successful Cake stall, which has become a yearly event and is the parish’s contribution to the PFGM. Many thanks to all who helped make the day such a success.
