"Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house so that I may take pleasure in it and be honoured, says the LORD" (Haggai 1:8)
By God's grace and with the support of our community, we could purchase a property at 347 Kelvin Road, Orange Grove in 2015 with the intention of building a parish church and related facilities for the St. Joseph Syro-Malabar Parish Perth. From then, we have been eagerly waiting, praying and working hard to bring this dream into a reality. Through struggles and sufferings, God has held our hands and guided us.
As a result of our prayers and hard work, our Development Application was approved on 23 July 2017. Then we started working with the designs for construction and raising funds for the project. In June 2018, we called tenders for the project and we finalised Alita Constructions as our builder in March 2019.
We lodged a building permit application for the forward works (site set out, earthworks, in-ground services, footings and ground floor slab) and it was approved by the city council on 06th June 2019. Our application for time extension and design amendments to Development Approval was also granted on 11th June 2019. Now, by God’s grace, we will be starting works on the property within a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, we will be working with the builder to get the final building permit approved to complete the project. Let us continue to pray for the successful completion of this project so that we and our generations may have a place of our own to worship God and to grow in faith.
Prayer for Church Building Project every Monday from 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm with Eucharistic Adoration at Maddington Church (Holy Mass in English at 7.00 pm )
As we progress towards the construction phase of our Church building project soon, I request your prayers and financial support. Our building committee members and parish councillors will be visiting your homes requesting your support. Kindly cooperate. Let us prayerfully join our hands to fulfill God's dream on this land.
