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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
