In the lead up to Christmas, Fr Wee is giving a series of talks on the 5 Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. The Talks are held on Monday evenings, beginning at 7.30pm in the Holy Name meeting room. All Welcome.

The Wednesday 9.30am mass this week will be offered for the Pro-Life work in the Archdiocese.

As you will no doubt have observed the fence along our driveway has come down and been replaced by a temporary fence while the adjoining property undergoes construction. Please take extra care over the coming weeks while the temporary fencing is in place. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please remember the sick in your prayers, especially Timothy Davey, Beni Hasheem, Miki Caputo, Elisabeth Duluk, Anne Russell, Germaine Miernik, Mary Smith (Gerard and Tim’s sister), Vincenza Martucci (Ines Barson’s mother) and Daniel Mageean (Bernard’s brother). Please remember also the recently deceased and also those whose anniversaries occur about this time.

Just a reminder that all children need to be accompanied to and from the toilet, ideally by an adult family member. Please be careful of small children when exiting the car park after mass and a reminder to all parents to watch their children after mass. It would be appreciated if you could park at the back of the car park near the creek first and avoid parking in the numbered spaces in front of Ellengowan Hall. There is more car parking available in St Peter’s Street (across Payneham Rd), and also across the creek (off Nelson St). Thank you for your understanding.
