POPE FRANCIS APPOINTS BISHOP PETER A. COMENSOLI THE NINTH ARCHBISHOP OF MELBOURNE
The Holy Father Pope Francis has appointed Most Reverend Bishop Peter Andrew Comensoli of the Diocese of Broken Bay as the ninth Archbishop of Melbourne. Archbishop-elect Comensoli said he was deeply moved by the Holy Father’s trust in making this appointment. ‘The life of Christian discipleship is a precious gift, developed through hearing and responding to God’s call. In accepting this call to be a new missionary among God’s people of the Archdiocese of Melbourne, I readily acknowledge the great responsibility entrusted to me, along with the frailties I carry,’ he said. ‘To the good people of Melbourne, let me say that you are already in my prayers. As I come among you I place my trust in the tender encouragement of Jesus. We are pilgrims together in the Lord’s vineyard. As we take these first steps in friendship, may we anchor our lives to his Gospel. I look forward to getting to know you. And, as a northerner, I will need some guidance around that mysterious code of football called AFL!’

In announcing the appointment, Pope Francis also accepted Archbishop Denis Hart’s resignation after 17 years as Archbishop of Melbourne. Archbishop Hart will serve as Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese until the installation of Archbishop-elect Comensoli on Wednesday 1 August.

‘Archbishop Hart described Archbishop-elect Comensoli as ‘a deeply pastoral and faith-filled man’. ‘He will bring many gifts to serve our people. I join the community in the Archdiocese of Melbourne in our prayerful and heartfelt welcome to him,’ said Archbishop Hart.

CHURCH REFURBISHMENT PROJECT
Unfortunately there have been further delays in completion of our church refurbishment project on account of issues found in the main structure of the foyer. This has resulted in new steel structure being designed and installed. Most major issues have now been resolved and the project is progressing well. The next major works relate to roof replacement which is expected to be undertaken in the next two weeks. The Builder and Architect has advised us of a new completion date of end August 2018 subject to normal weather conditions. We are sorry for the inconvenience this delay is causing and thank you for your patience. If there are any further changes to the timetable we will keep parishioners updated.

STEWARDSHIP CORNER – THE NATIVITY OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST
“Behold, one is coming after me; I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.” – ACTS 13:25

Stewardship is a lifestyle, it’s not a program or a process. It’s how we are called to live our lives twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! It challenges us to live “God-centered” lives, not “self-centered” lives. Reflect on your daily activities, do you do them for the glory of God or for the glory of your own name?

There will be a third Collection this weekend June 23/24 for Peter’s Pence – the annual collection for the Holy Father.

STEWARDSHIP CORNER – 11TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive good or evil, according to what he has done in the body.”...….                2 Corinthians 5:10
We are all accountable for the gifts God has given us – our time, our talent and our treasure. Each of us is accountable not only for our own life but for the lives of others as well. One day God will ask each of us what did we do with the gifts we were given. How will you respond?

PETER’S PENCE COLLECTION
There will be a third Collection next weekend June 23/24 for Peter’s Pence – the annual collection for the Holy Father. A brief explanation of the origins of the Peter’s Pence Collection is given below:
In 1871, Pope Pius IX formalized the practice of lay members of Church and "other persons of good will" – providing financial support directly to the Roman See. In general, contributions go to the local parish or diocese, who then provide contributions to support higher level offices. Collections for Peter's Pence go directly to Rome. Pius IX approved this practice in the encyclical Saepe Venerabilis, issued on 5 August 1871. The money collected is today used by the pope for philanthropic purposes. At present, this collection is taken each year on the Sunday closest to 29 June, the Solemnity of the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, according to the Roman Church.

RECENTLY DECEASED
