SUNDAY WORSHIP  
Week-end Mass is an occasion for rejoicing for all of us. However, may I respectfully ask that conversations are kept to a minimum, so that we can properly dispose ourselves, gathering our thoughts and prayers in readiness to welcome Christ in Word and Sacrament. Many come with heavy burdens, worries and concerns and an atmosphere of quiet reverence can help open troubled hearts and minds to God.  Thank you.  Fr John.
 
WELCOME into our family of Faith 
Jackson James Cotter and Marisa Rita Cotter who were baptised here last Sunday.
 
Church Care and Maintenance 
The next phase of the project is to upgrade and standardise the lighting to give a uniform colour temperature throughout. The carpet tiles are well-past their best and so we are looking at options for replacement.
 
YOUTH GROUP 
As mentioned at the end of the Family Mass last weekend, we are keen to create a YOUTH GROUP. This would be an opportunity for our High School parishioners to meet on a regular basis. This Group is for YOU and we want to know your ideas as to how this would work best – if you have any ideas/ suggestions then please speak to one of the Children’s Liturgy leaders, Fr John or add these to the sheet on the notice board. The aim is to have the first meeting sometime before the end of this year.
