Upcoming Events

THE SUNDAY SQUEEZE (Finding time for Mass in a busy schedule)

Family time is busy. Even without children, our modern lives are packed with activities.

So how do busy people make time for Mass, and why would they want to?

HOW TO GET THERE:

         ·          Plan ahead - Schedule Mass ahead of time and fit other activities around it. Make Mass the priority                     or it will get squeezed out.

         ·           Free up Sundays - Do chores on weekday nights. Confine kids activities to other days.

         ·           After Mass bonus - keep the positivity going afterwards with a visit to the park, ice cream                                     shop or café.

         ·           Double duty - If you are on the road, attend Mass near where you’ll be doing other things.

WHY MASS:

                   1. Feed your soul: Mass is a spiritual superfood.

         2. Connect with others.

         3. Breathe, Rest, Recharge: Get off the activity treadmill.

         4. God said so: Do we need a better reason?

Through Sunday rest, daily concerns and tasks find their proper perspective, the material things we worry about give way to spiritual values.

St Pope John Paul II.


MORNING MASS TIME

 

MORNING MASS TIME FOR YOUNG BEGINS AT 8-00AM IN THE CHAPEL


“WE NEED YOUR HELP”

 

Could you spare one hour twice or three times a year to help your local church? The work is not hard or strenuous and training will be provided. We really need your skills and passion to continue to grow our church community.

We need volunteers in cleaning the church, flower arrangements, music, children’s ministry, cleaning the linen, readers, altar servers, greeters, gardeners, to name a few.

Please have a think about how you can contribute to your church and perhaps make new friends and improve your church.

We understand everyone’s lives are busy and finding that extra time for volunteering is hard. However, just a couple of hours per year can make a huge difference. We are flexible and will work with your availability.

As stated in Matthew 9:37 “Then he said to his disciples - The Harvest is plentiful but the workers are few”.

If you feel you might be able to contribute your time, even for a short period, please give Monique Griffin a call on (0428) 488-927.

Thank you.
