Thank you to everyone for your co-operation regarding the car park last Sunday.

Please remember the sick in your prayers, especially Anne Russell, Miki Caputo, and Vincenza Martucci (Ines Barson’s mother). Please remember also the recently deceased especially Gerald Tellis (Fr Mannes father) and also those whose anniversaries occur about this time, especially Jim Mulligan.

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.
