PLENARY COUNCIL 2020 – LISTEN TO WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING
Pope Francis has approved the Australian Bishops’ decision to hold a Plenary Council in Australia in 2020 and 2021. It is a significant moment for the Church in Australia to make decisions about the future. To prepare the agenda for the Plenary Council, all of God’s people are invited to reflect on the question: “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?” Find out more about the Plenary Council 2020 at the new website, now online: www.plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au.

FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI – SUNDAY 3RD JUNE
There will be a procession of the Monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament around the School Oval on Sunday 3rd June. Kindly note that this will start at 10:20am SHARP, followed by Mass. All Welcome.
STEWARDSHIP CORNER – FEAST OF THE HOLY TRINITY
“The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” ROMANS 8:16-17
If we are heirs to the kingdom of God, shouldn’t we work to build up His kingdom? Shouldn’t we be good stewards of our inheritance, using our time in prayer, our talent in charitable works and our treasure to care for the Church that God has left to us? Our Church is a treasured heirloom from God. Do we treat it that way?
