After-School Religious Instruction (“Chi Rho”)
Our after-school religious instruction team help educate in the faith those children who do not attend Catholic Schools. Classes are conducted for all children of primary school age, and emphasis is placed on good sacramental preparation with support from the family. Classes are held from 4.00-5.00pm every Tuesday during school term at the Parish Centre.

A program designed specifically for teens, to help prepare for the reception of sacraments and to grow deeper in the faith. Classes are held from 4.00-5.00pm every Tuesday during school term in Xavier House, running from Term 3 through to Pentecost the following year.
Catholic Charismatic Renewal
The Armadale Catholic Charismatic Renewal group meets at 7pm every first, second and third Friday of the month in Xavier House. All are welcome to join in Spirit-led praise and worship.
Couples for Christ
Couples for Christ are a Catholic movement serving the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. CFC couples commit themselves to the Lord and to one another so as to grow in maturity as men and women of God, and to fulfil their primary vocation of raising families grounded in Christian values, in the service and love of God. Their motto is: “Families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth.”
Legion of Mary
The parish’s Legion of Mary Presidium meets at 6pm every Wednesday, and undertakes spiritual and corporal works of mercy including daily Rosary, devotions to Our Lady, and visits to hospitals, nursing homes and the housebound.
Those who find themselves or a loved one in need of urgent prayer can contact the parish office, and a staff member will pass the intention onto the prayer chain for their prayer and spiritual support. Requests remain confidential.
