Christian Meditation 

Christian Meditation is practised here at St Kevin’s Parish every Wednesday morning @ 9.30am.

During this era of restrictions, we are not physically gathering to meditate, rather our Co-Ordinator,
Lydia Dyhin, has ensured continuation of our sessions via “zoom”.
All are welcome to join in. Simply contact Lydia on 0411 191 485 or via email on
Another alternative is through WCCMA (The World Community for Christian Meditation Australia) which has a fantastic resource of online meditation sessions you can join in with. Please take a look using this link: WCCMA online meditation sessions

“Christian meditation is a form of contemplative prayer in which a structured attempt is made to become aware of and reflect upon the revelations of God.” Wikipedia

Gentle Hands are going through COVID-19 in even more difficult circumstances than we can imagine.


Gentle Hands is a very special charity St Kevin’s endorses.

Charity Graff and her staff are among the most dedicated people 
towards the abandoned and abused children of the Philippines. An orphanage that has been running since 1993. With love and faith, Gentle Hands gives children hope, a safe place and possible future.
Please read their latest message and visit their website if you can help or donate.

‘A Little Bit of Hope’

Just in the past three weeks, the Philippines has been struck by 5 typhoons (Quinta, Rolly, Siony, Tonyo, and Ulysses) bringing strong wind, heavy rain which has triggered massive flooding affecting areas in the North, the South, and Metro Manila. Houses are still submerged. Some have lost everything. Everything.
