Message from Father David Ranson
Welcome to the Parish of Holy Name Wahroonga!
As a community of Catholic faith in the Diocese of Broken Bay, our parish is a place of welcome to you. We hope that your experience of visiting us and being drawn into the life of our community will provide you with a great sense of belonging and nurture your discipleship of the Risen Christ. Do come and spend some time in our most beautiful of churches set in a peaceful natural setting which speaks of the gentle presence and invitation of God. As you come to know us you will discover so many opportunities to participate and to contribute– through our liturgy with its special attention to music, through our social events which create a great sense of community, through our pastoral activities which seek to deepen everyone’s faith and which are also animated by our mission to those who are ill or disadvantaged. Our parish enjoys a rich legacy from its beginnings in the Dominican Tradition of spirituality and we are linked to some of the most remarkable schools – especially to our own parish school, Prouille, and to two schools for children with special needs – St. Lucy’s and St. Edmund’s- both in our parish, also.
Do explore here some of the many things that make our parish community such a special place. We look forward to you becoming a part of our community’s life!
Fr. David Ranson
