Join us on Saturday 5th May at 3pm in the Rosary Room for the Rosary followed by afternoon tea. Children welcome.
A Healing Mass, followed by morning tea, will be held at OLR Church on Thursday 26th April at 10:30am. There will be a sit down Morning Tea in the Foyer of the Church after the Mass.
If you can help with transport to and from Mass please contact Jan on 0407 218 072.
This year we would like to celebrate Mother’s Day by creating a short video using photographs of the mothers and grandmothers in our parish. This video will be played during the reflection time at all three masses on the weekend of the 12th and 13th of May.
If you would like to be a part of the video, simply take a photo – it may be of yourself or you might include your children, mother or grandmother. Then email your photo to email@example.com or send a message to 0411 169 528.
To ensure that you are included in the video, please send your photo by Monday 7th of May.
If you are unable to take a photo, see Jane Marmotta or Lena and they will gladly take a photo of you.
There will be another Mass following the one you attend. Can you take time to:
• place hymn books in the holders at the end of each pew (two books at either end)
• take the parish bulletin with you, or return it to the foyer of the church
• place the laminated mass sheets in the containers at either entrance to the church
• check that you have taken all your possessions with you.
Your co-operation is appreciated and will ensure our Church is tidy and ready for other masses, funerals etc
Just a reminder that all Journey Catholic Radio information is always a week in advance.
Next week on the Journey Catholic Radio, our Gospel reflection about the ‘Vines and the Branches” is spoken to us by Fr Steven Varney. The Catholic Guy, Bruce Downes questions us about The Wrong Map, and Marilyn Rodrigues encourages us to Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry. The music is the thread that helps us connect our show to you, and with this, we create a show about faith, hope, love and life. Go to www.jcr.org.au or www.itunes.jcr.org.au where you can listen anytime and subscribe to weekly shows by email.
Come and join us for our first Social Justice Gathering for 2018!
We will have panels of speakers on a variety of topics related to our theme for the day which will focus on solar energy and anti-slavery projects. There will be a mix of practical and informative sessions and time to renew or begin relationships with social justice groups from other parishes. We will also have some time to hear from existing leaders about how to start and run a social justice group in your parish. Our full line-up of speakers will be announced shortly!
There will be a delicious lunch and refreshments throughout the day. There is plenty of street parking and the venue is easily accessible by public transport as well.
All most welcome!
St Canice Parish has operated a soup kitchen – St Canice’s Kitchen – for the past
30 years. The kitchen serves meals every day to homeless and those in need. The kitchen is open 7 days a week for lunch and 1 night for dinner thanks to the generosity of its numerous volunteers and donors. For many years we have had a tradition where the Sunday lunch for the poor and homeless is provided by groups from other parishes throughout Sydney. It has proved to be a highly rewarding experience for them. The kitchen is currently in need of some new Sunday teams of volunteers (approximately 7 people each shift) to run a shift providing around 120 lunches and desserts and be available from 9am to 1.30pm (the kitchen is open from 11am to 1pm).
Kensington Parish already have a team serving but if anyone else is interested in starting a new team, please contact Lynelle Lembryk on 0403 795 381 to discuss.
