Leo Wandersmith (President)

THE BROWN SCAPULAR OF OUR BLESSED LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL
A little bit of information on the brown Scapulars which were so kindly distributed by the Brothers and Sisters of Two Hearts at all masses last weekend.

Since the Scapular is a sign of total consecration to Mary, it should be a constant reminder to clothe ourselves with her virtues, to radiate her grace and beauty in our daily lives and to live in humble submission to God’s will.

Mary lived to serve her Divine Son. The Scapular should remind us to rise up, go in haste and be always about Our Father’s business. She still lives to serve and we ought to be with her. Our constant prayer to her should be: USE ME TODAY. And as Pius XII, the great Lover of the Scapular writes, “Certainly the most gentle Mother will not delay to open, as soon as possible, the gates of heaven for her children.”

ANNUAL ANNIVERSARY MASS
Are you celebrating your 25th, 40th, 50th, or 60th–70th wedding anniversary this year? The Life, Marriage & Family Office invite you and your families to join us at the Annual Anniversary Mass. The Mass will be celebrated at St Patrick's Cathedral on Sunday 31 July at 11:00am by Archbishop Denis Hart. Couples who register will receive commemorative certificates and packs. To register call 9287 5587 or visit Lmf@cam.org.au, www.cam.org.au/lifemarriagefamily. Registrations close Friday 15 July.

SAUSAGE SIZZLE
The Fundraising Committee will hold a Sausage Sizzle after all masses on the weekend of 2/3 August.  Volunteers are requested for the Sunday morning and Sunday night masses.

POPE’S INTENTIONS FOR JUNE
Universal: That the aged, marginalized, and those who have no one may find – even within the huge cities of the world – opportunities for encounter and solidarity.
Evangelization: That seminarians and men and women entering religious life may have mentors who live the joy of the Gospel and prepare them wisely for their mission.

REFLECTION FOR , 13TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
“For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters. But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh; rather serve one another through love.”             Galatians 5:13

We like to celebrate the fact that we are free to “live the good life.”  But Jesus calls us to a different kind of freedom.  St. Paul reminds us that Jesus sets us free so that we can serve one another, share our gifts and promote God’s work here on earth to glorify His name and not honor ourselves.

IN PRAISE OF MERCY: REFLECTION MORNING WITH MGR TOMÁŠ HALÍK
Saturday 9 July, 10am–12pm - Divine Mercy Shrine, 337-343 Greens Road, Keysborough

Come and visit one of Melbourne’s shrines of mercy and spend some time in prayer and thanksgiving. Mgr Tomáš Halík will be leading us in a Holy Hour and celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Mgr Halík is a celebrated author, academic and winner of the 2014 Templeton Prize, which recognises those who have made exceptional contributions to affirming life’s spiritual dimension. He is Professor at Charles University, parish priest of the Academic Parish in Prague, and president of the Czech Christian Academy. All welcome!

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS AND THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
Hail O most loving Hearts of Jesus and Mary! We venerate You, we love and honour You. We give and consecrate ourselves to You forever. Receive us and possess us entirely. Purify, enlighten, and sanctify us, so that we may love You Jesus, with the Heart of Mary, and love You Mary with the Heart of Jesus. O Heart of Jesus, living in Mary and by Mary. O Heart of Mary, living in Jesus and for Jesus. O Heart of Jesus pierced for our sins and giving us Your Mother on Calvary. O heart of Mary pierced by sorrow and sharing in the sufferings of your Divine Son for our redemption. O sacred union of these Two Hearts. Triumph O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Reign O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, in our hearts, in our homes and families, in Your Church, in the lives of all the faithful, in the hearts of those who as yet know You not and in all the nations of the world. Establish in the hearts of all mankind the sovereign triumph and reign of Your Two Hearts so that the earth may resound from pole to pole with one cry; Blessed forever be the most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary!

O dearest St. Joseph I entrust myself to your honour and give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector, and my guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me a greater purity of heart and a fervent love for the interior life. After your example may I do all my actions for the greater glory of the triune God, in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. O dearest St. Joseph, pray for me that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death, Amen.

STEWARDSHIP CORNER - 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”   LUKE 9:23
We are not very good at “denying ourselves” in our society.  Our current economic situation is evidence of what happens when people think they can have everything they want.  Jesus calls us to set our own personal “wants” aside so that we have the resources to follow Him instead.

HOMILY REFLECTION
To help us reflect on the homily, from now on, at all masses each weekend, there will be one minute’s silence after which the first collection will be taken up. We thank you for your understanding.

MARRIAGE PAPERWORK – OVERSEAS WEDDINGS
If you intend to be married overseas, please contact the parish office to find out details of paperwork and to make an appointment to meet with Fr. Pius six months prior to the marriage. Requirement for overseas weddings is that all paperwork must be completed, signed by the Parish Priest and sent to the Vicar General’s Office for necessary action. All paperwork is then to be sent to the diocese where the marriage is to take place. The overseas diocese will also sign the paperwork and will forward it to the celebrant. Because of this lengthy procedure, it is important that arrangements begin six months prior to the marriage.

CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS & THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
The Brothers of Two Hearts will visit our parish on the weekend of 18th and 19th June to consecrate our parish families to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Stewardship renewal will take place at the end of June. New envelopes will be available for collection on the 18th/19th June. If you would like to change your current pledge or mode of giving, please contact Josephine on 9749 4300, or email stpeters@westnet.com.au or hopperscrossing@cam.org.au on or before 31st May 2016. If you would like to join our Stewardship program, please take a registration card from the foyer, complete the Stewardship side and drop it into the collection bags during Mass or in the Mass offering slot near the sacristy. You can also drop it off at the parish office or give it to Fr. Pius or Deacon Charles after Mass.

REGISTRATION OF PARISHIONERS
If you are not already a parishioner and would like to be registered as one at St Peters, please complete a registration card available from the foyer and as above, drop it in the collection bags during Mass or in the Mass offering slot near the sacristy or at the parish office or give it to Fr. Pius or Deacon Charles after Mass. Please remember that being baptised in this parish or attending Mass regularly does not automatically make a person a parishioner.  The person needs to be registered on our census program.
