TWEET FROM POPE FRANCIS
With the Ascension of Jesus, we participate in the fullness of life with God. Let us carry this in our hearts in our daily lives.

THANK YOU to all the parishioners who contributed $2961.70 to our call for help to the Sri Lankan Christian Community in Colombo and Negombo who suffered so devastatingly as a result of the bombings.  Our Parish will contribute additional funds to bring the total amount to $4000.

JOSE DE PIRO KABATAAN (YOUTH) ORCHESTRA
The Jose De Piro Kabataan (youth) orchestra began five years ago in the parish of St Catherine of Alexandria, under the pastoral care of the MSSP, in the poor village of Pagalanggang, in Dinalupihan, Bataan Province in the Philippines. The aim of this orchestra is to empower these young people giving them a skill they can use to better their life. 34 members of this orchestra, together with their conductor and the parish priest are doing a 10 day concert tour in Tarneit, Braybook, Heidelberg and Colac starting from this Saturday 8th June. The concerts are free, donations to support the orchestra are welcome. Some members of this orchestra are being sponsored to continue their studies at tertiary level in a university in Manila. This is a marvellous opportunity of grace as we reveal and embrace the human face of our Christ in hospitality and love. We thank Host Families and all who have made this event possible. You can meet the Orchestra as they attend the 5:00pm Mass at St James on Sunday 9th or at one of their concerts. To book a free seat at the concert, please visit the following sites (should the Tarneit Venue be fully booked, you are welcome to book at one of the other venues):
