Please call the Parish Office to have names placed on any of the lists above or to remove someone who is now well.
Confirmation: On the 27th August 15 children received the Sacrament of Confirmation. It was a very special and prayerful evening for the children and their families led by Vicar General Monsignor Peter Meneely and Fr Subin. Please continue to pray for the children as they start to prepare for First Holy Communion in 2021, when they will be fully initiated into the Church.
First Holy Communion 2020: The children of the Parish that received Confirmation in 2019 will begin to prepare for First Holy Communion at the Rite of Enrolment at each Mass on 5/6 September. Please continue to support these families through prayer on their faith journey to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus.

UPDATE ON PARISH MASSES
With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions we have returned to our normal Mass schedule (see front of newsletter for Mass times). However, in line with the Govern-ment’s social distancing guidelines, we are allowed a maximum of 100 people in at-tendance at each Mass (including the Priest and any ministers).
If you would like to attend a Mass over the coming weeks you can obtain a ticket from the Church Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday’s 8:30am - 11:00am or after each Mass on the weekend. If you are unable to obtain a ticket for your preferred Mass it means that the allocation has been exhausted and we encourage you to reg-ister for another available Mass.
When arriving at the Church there are 2 entrances one on the carpark side and the other through the Trueslon room. Give the marshal your ticket and write your name and contact number on the sheet provided. To help allow this process move quickly it is suggested to arrive at the church 15-20 mins prior to Mass starting.
Fr Subin Thomas PP
The Church will be open for private prayer Mon - Fri 7:30am & 11:00am & Sat 8:30am - 11:00am. Visitors must sanitise their hands upon entry and exit. Occupancy of the space will need to be monitored at all times by a designated marshal. As regulated by the government, the designated marshal will record the name, address, phone num-ber and time of visit for each visitor as a protection to assist with contact tracing if necessary.
Parish Youth News
Because of the changing nature of circumstances, I’ve decided to make our Youth News about what we’ve done, not what we’re planning to do. For those who are on my texting list, I’ll keep you updated about plans and/or changes to plans. If you are not on my list, but would like to be, just give me a call on 0400 494 943.
Last Saturday, some of our young people (and a few parents) had a lovely day at Marian Valley. Fr Subin celebrated Mass with us in the bush at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Southern Cross. Those of us who stayed for the whole day were treated to a beautiful glittery display by the fireflies in the evening. The weather was pretty windy but we managed to not get blown off the mountain when we went for our hike 🙂 If you’ve never been to Marian Valley, I highly recommend it!
On Thursday night, some of our band members provided music for 2 lovely celebrations of Confirmation in our Parish. Congratulations to all the children who were confirmed. May the Holy Spirit be your inspiration for all of your life!
