STM Child Safeguarding Notice - October 2019

  Dear parishioners,

 Consistent with the  requirements of the Victorian Child Safe Standards, the Archbishop, through the Professional Standards Unit has requested that all the clergy, staff and volunteers across the diocese to have a valid Working with Children Check (WWCC).  As a diocese, we are working towards creating safe environments in our communities, organisations and parishes where children and young people are able to grow and develop.

Therefore, I write to invite every volunteer across all parish ministry groups, to apply for a Working with Children Check, if you have not already done so.  The Working with children Check is free for volunteers.  If you have      obtained a WWCC but have not given a copy to the parish, please can you do so as soon as possible because we need to keep a record of the WWCC for each volunteer. 

Vicki, our Office Manager, will be able to help anyone who may need assistance with completing the online         application for the WWCC.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all that you have done to help us proclaiming the Gospel to the people of Mount Eliza.  All of you are highly valued by our staff, PPLT, parishioners and myself! 
                                                                                                                   

                                                                                                                                 Kind regards,  (Fr) Joe Truong

 

Upcoming Events


2019 Sacramental Programs

Sacraments

Baptisms are held in the Parish on the first and third Sundays of each month at 11:15am or at any Parish Mass on a second, fourth or fifth Sunday of the month, after parents have attended a compulsory

 Information Night, which takes place on the first Tuesday of each month (the second Tuesday in November, and please note there is NO JANUARY Information Night) in the Parish Community Centre at 7:30pm and

 Parish Welcome (arranged at this preparation night) to take place at a Parish weekend Mass on a 1st or 3rd Sunday of the month (prior to the day of the baptism)

 Please note that when children of school age are to be baptised, an extended preparation time (3-4 weeks min) is required.

 

FIRST RECONCILIATION

Children in Year 3 (or older) are prepared for their First Reconciliation at the Parish school or at Parish classes.

 In 2019, the Information and Workshop Night for First Reconciliation for Parents and Children will be held on Wednesday 27th February in the School Multi-Purpose Room at 7:30 pm. Classes will commence on Tuesday 5th March from 4pm-5pm. Please call Lys Crowe on 9787 7777 before the Information Night if your child does not attend St Thomas More Primary School and you would like them to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and Eucharist in 2019.

 

 FIRST EUCHARIST

First Eucharist is also offered to our young parishioners in Year 3 (or older). Please note that it is the practice in the Archdiocese that Reconciliation must happen before First Eucharist. If your child has not already made their First Reconciliation, you would need to contact us in the first week of the school year, so that they can prepare for Reconciliation first. Preparation for both sacraments happens at the Parish School or at after-school classes.

 In 2019, the Information and Workshop Night for First Eucharist for Parents and Children will be held on Thursday 18th July in the School Multi-Purpose Room at 7:30 pm. Please call Lys Crowe on 9787 7777 before the Information Night if your child does not attend St Thomas More Primary School and you would like them to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and Eucharist in 2019.

 Classes will be held weekly before the Reception of First Eucharist during August.

 There will also be a Retreat Day.

  

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is offered to young people in Year 6 (or older). The exact date each year is determined by the Archdiocese.

 There will be an Information Night and Workshop for Parents and Children on Thursday 4th April

 Weekly Classes will then be held. Please contact Lys Crowe on 9787 7777.

 There will also be a Retreat Day.

 The dates for the Sacrament of Confirmation for 2019 are Saturday 18th May at 6pm, Sunday 19th May at 10:00am and Saturday 25th May at 6:00pm

  

WEDDINGS

Six months' notification is normally required to allow for proper preparation. The priest who is celebrating your marriage will assist you in that preparation and look after all civil and church requirements. Please contact Fr. Laurie directly to arrange an appointment to confirm the time and date of your wedding.

 

FUNERALS

The death of a loved one is a very difficult time. As a parish community, we will do all that we can to ease the situation for you. The time and place of the Funeral is determined in consultation with the family, the priest and the funeral arranger.
