Dear Greg & Maureen.
Fr. Vincent, Dcn. Charles and all our parishioners would like to pass on our sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved son Bernard. May He who knows your sorrow bring peace, comfort and healing to you in the days ahead. Please know that we are praying for you and your family and are here to support you in any way we can. God Bless you.
All men are invited to join us at the Community Centre each Saturday morning from 7:20 to 8:30 for breakfast and an informal discussion of a faith issue. A hearty appetite is an advantage. Come and see if you enjoy the experience. If you have any queries, ring Les on 0401 541 666.
We welcome into our Church community Lukas Ferreira, Eric Ngo, Aisea Ngalu, Jaxon Murphy, Pippa Murphy, Daisy Murphy and Bella Murphy who are to be baptised this Sunday. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the love of their Parents, Godparents, family and friends, we pray that these children will lead a life full of happiness, faith and love.
