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.

FR. TRENTON VAN REESCH

 

After only a very short stay with us, Fr. Trenton has been appointed Administrator of the Cathedral in Canberra commencing the 14th of June, 2019.

It is rather short notice, but we wish him all the best for his new appointment and sincerely thank him for his generous and life giving ministry in the Young Mission.

We will certainly miss his zest and prayerful enthusiasm.

Unfortunately, no replacement is being sent and adjustments for mass times have been changed as below.

FAREWELL AT THE PARISH CENTRE

There was a lovely gathering of people from Young Mission at the Parish Centre for Fr Trenton’s Farewell.

Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to make his farewell a very special night.

He was extremely grateful.      

 


NEW MASS TIMES CHANGE

 

This affects Grenfell and Young for Sunday Masses.

Starting Sunday, 30th June:

Sunday Mass at Young will be 8-00am.

Sunday Mass at Grenfell will be 9-30am.

This Sunday Mass time at Young may be altered to 7-30am if I’m not able to get to Grenfell in sufficient time.

FOR BOOROWA: Saturday evening masses will alternate between myself and Fr Dominic Carrigan CSSR from Galong to enable me to maintain contact with Boorowa Parish. AND FOR YOUNG: Saturday evening masses will alternate between myself and Fr Allen Crowe to enable me to maintain contact with Boorowa Parish.


“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.
