COVID 19 UPDATE 17/9/21

CHURCH IS CLOSED.  

Dear Parishioners

We are very aware of the enormous impact these past few weeks of lockdown have had on many of us.

We pray that you are able to be creative, continue to pray and to support each other and your families during these times.

As a parish we offer pastoral visits to the ill and most vulnerable and 'Hello R U OK' phone calls to those who would like to have a friendly chat. We realise that each of us is important and deserving of support during these difficult times.

To have Fr Wayne pay you or your loved one a pastoral visit or to receive a

'Hello, R U OK' phone call please leave your name and number at the Parish House on 9457 5794. 

We pray that we will soon be able to gather together as a community for Mass in the not too distant future. In the meantime stay safe and well.

Kind regards

Fr Wayne

HUMANITARIAN CRISES IN AFGHANISTAN AND LEBANON

HUMANITARIAN CRISES IN AFGHANISTAN AND LEBANON

As the situations in Afghanistan and Lebanon deteriorate, you can help to support families caught up in the crises.

In Afghanistan, people have been forced from their homes, with half of the population in urgent need of food, water, shelter and protection.

In Lebanon, the country is running out of power, water, fuel, medicine and food. Even hospitals are facing massive fuel shortages and will soon have to turn off the lights.

Please donate to Caritas Australia so that we are able to respond to crises like these and others across the world.

AS A REFLECTION ON THE GOSPEL AND THE PARALYMPICS IN TOKYO


The Sunday Gospel shows us that in touching the ears and tongue of the handicapped man, Jesus also touched his wounded heart. It was above all else that made the man new. Given the timeliness of the Paralympics in Tokyo I think the following has something to say about people everywhere and how we should treat each other.

A handicapped person observed ‘Living as a cripple allows you to see more clearly the crippled hearts of some people whose bodies are whole and sound’.

PARISHES LOCKDOWN LIGHT — A WEEKLY SERIES SEEKING TO BRING 'LIGHT' TO THIS TIME OF LOCKDOWN - WEEK 3

SAFEGUARDING SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 2021

The Catholic Church in Australia marks Safeguarding Sunday (formerly Child Protection Sunday) on the second Sunday of September, at the conclusion of National Child Protection Week.

Safeguarding Sunday seeks to acknowledge the immense damage caused by the sexual abuse of children and adults at risk, including by priests, religious and lay people within Catholic contexts. It makes a commitment to practices and protocols that create and maintain safe environments for all people. It invites people to pray for those harmed by abuse directly and indirectly.

Safeguarding Sunday also invites us to thank God and the people responsible for the enormous work that has been done to ensure that children are safe in Church settings. We need to keep working to ensure that they continue to do so.
