ARCHBISHOP COSTELLOE PASTORAL LETTER - 2017 Mental Health Week

OCTOBER: MONTH OF PRAYER FOR MISSIONS

This connection is due to the fact that Pope Pius XI established the penultimate Sunday of October as the World Mission Sunday. Australia has always been regarded as a mission country, due to the large number of Australians who are not Christians.

We keep this intention in our prayer, though nowadays the countries that can effectively claim of being Christian in name and deed are really few. May our parish community become ever more missionary in our area, in the sense of being eager - in deed - to share with our friends the treasure of the Faith with received!


ROSARY AT THE FORESHORE

To mark the closing of the centenary of the apparition of Our Lady in Fatima, a rosary will be prayed at the Churchill park, across from the Rockingham Hotel, on Friday, 13 October 2017, at 6.00pm. BYO chairs or blankets and finger food to share.


RITE OF ACCEPTANCE

A few friends are on their journey with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). They will be introduced to our community on Sunday, 15 October 2017, during the 9.30am and 6.00pm Masses (when they usually attend). Let us make them welcome!


PROCLAIMERS OF THE WORD OF GOD (READERS) WORKSHOP

A number of new readers have recently started offering their precious services to our community. For their benefit, we thought of offering a training session here in our parish hall.

TRAINING OF CATECHISTS FOR ADULTS

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) requires Catholic adults who are ready to journey with those who approach our Faith and community for the first time.

Please RSVP at the parish office.


FOODFEST - 12 NOVEMBER 2017

The canonical visitation to our parish will conclude on Sunday, 12 November. Bishop Don Sproxton will be present at all Masses over the weekend. An excellent opportunity for him to meet our parish will be our annual FoodFest. Are you interested to give a hand by adding the taste of your country to the event?

RETREAT FOR ACOLYTES AND MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION

These members of our community hold the privilege of serving the Holy Eucharist in a very close way. For this reason, we need to take special care of their spiritual journey. A resource person from the Centre for Liturgy will travel to our parish to offer them a time of spiritual renewal and update on Saturday, 25 November 2017, from 9.30am to 12.30pm, at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall. Morning tea will be provided. PLEASE RSVP AT THE OFFICE
