Dear Parishioners,

Christmas and New Year is a time of gratitude and celebration. It is a time of peace and joy that we celebrate with our family, relatives and friends. As a priest, I have only celebrated Christmas once with my immediate family and that was in 2012. The MSC and the parish that I work in have always been the family that I celebrate Christmas and New Year with.

As we prepare ourselves for these upcoming special events, I invite you to reflect on three things.

The first is that this is a time to remember the things that God has done for us through some ordinary and some extraordinary experiences in our life. Remembering those experiences gives us a sense of gratitude.

The second is that this is a time to celebrate. A sense of gratitude leads us to celebrate with happiness and gladness. Our celebration would be worthy if a sense of gratitude is our source of gladness. This is especially true when we are able to recognise God’s presence in the many experiences we’ve had this year.
The Third is that this is a time of hope. We hope for the better future and trust that God will continue to be with us. This spirit of trust gives us optimism. This is part of our Christian identity. We are people of hope; people who are optimistic and not pessimistic.

Kimi, Khoi and I are away after Christmas. Kimi returns on 11th January, and I and Khoi will be back in the parish a week after. While we are away, the MSC monastery community will look after the masses in the parish.

With a grateful heart, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. For those who are travelling this holiday, I wish you a safe journey and we will see you all next year.

Building & Maintenance Committee Update

Thank you to everyone who has donated to the building fund in support of our new Parish bathroom at the back of the Church. This project is long overdue and will make a real difference to the parishioners and families who use our beautiful church. There is still time to make a contribution if you would like to. Envelopes for donations are in the church and you can simply place them in the collection bags during mass.

We are also happy to announce that rectification work on the floor in the Parish Hall will be undertaken over the school holidays. While it was price prohibitive to replace the entire floor, the work that will be done will help smooth out many of the rough boards and make it a safer and more comfortable flooring for the children to sit and play on.
