MANY THANKS TO THE PARISHIONERS OF ST ANTHONY'

I would like to express just how proud I was of our parish in terms of the Rosary and Funeral for the late Fr Patrick Boyle. It was entirely appropriate that we show our love and respect for this extraordinary man who gave the vast majority of his adult life in service of the people of this parish.Not only did he spend more than 27 years ministering to the people of this area...he really loved the people of this area. I would like to acknowledge our wonderful choir and Rose Konijn as well as all who brought along food for the many people who stayed afterwards to reminisce about Fr Paddy. I was fortunate to accompany Fr Paddy's sisters, Margot and Rosaline, on the Emirates flight that evening to Dublin. They were very touched by the lovely send off their brother received. Praise the Lord for the wonders in our mids!

ST ANTHONY’S SCHOOL 80TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

St Anthony’s School, Wanneroo is celebrating 80 years of sharing light, faith and knowledge. All past students and staff are invited to Mass on Friday, 4th September at 9 am. RSVP to 9303 7500 or admin@stanthonyswann.wa.edu.au.

CHILD PROTECTION OFFICERS

A few weeks ago we released the Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan policy ‘The Safeguarding Project’ and we called upon parishioners to apply for the role of a Safeguarding Officer in this parish community. Quite a few people took application forms home. Could you please submit your application sooner rather than later so we can select 2 officers for the necessary training. This is a crucial area for the church as your preparedness to apply is essential to the protection of children and vulnerable adults. Many thanks Fr John

FIRST FRIDAY EVENING MASS AND ADORATION

PARISH YOUTH CAMP

There will be a Camp for young people, Yr 9 and above, on the weekend of September 26/27th, 2015. We will be going to Eagles Nest Retreat Centre in Gidgegannup. We hope to depart the church car-park on Friday evening 25 September at approximately 5pm (exact details will be provided closer to the date). We will return to the parish car-park at approximately 2pm on Sunday September 27. The cost per person is $25, which should cover food costs. The parish will pay for accommodation. Some parent assistance may be required to transport children to and from the site. Please register your desire to attend by putting your name and phone number on the sheet in the foyer. You will also find registration forms which need to be completed and handed in by Sunday September 6.

PARISH COURSE ON CHURCH HISTORY

After much research and considerable thought I have decided on our next Bible Study course. I believe that a Church History course would be of great benefit to anyone interested in developing their faith. Our last course The Great Adventure covered the entire Biblical Story from Genesis to Acts. The natural progression from this ending is to look at what happened next. We have discovered a great resource:

Epic: A Journey through Church History Do you know your family history? The history of the Church is the story of our family. It is the epic story of our ancestors in the Faith – the heroic men and women who shaped civilization and spread the Gospel throughout the world. Knowing this story is crucial to our identity as Catholics. Just as we would uncover exciting and interesting stories of our ancestors through the study of our family genealogy, we can uncover our Catholic past through the study of Church history. Knowledge of our Catholic story helps provide meaning to the present, and the present determines the future. Learning 2,000 years of history can be a daunting task – but with Epic: A Journey through Church History, you can easily learn the amazing story of the Church.

What you will learn... The 2,000-year story of the Church by understanding the main themes of each of the 12 time periods. The true story of the Crusades and the “Inquisition.” The revolutionary character of the Protestant Reformation. Why Mary Tudor, the Catholic daughter of Henry VIII is known as “Bloody Mary” while Queen Elizabeth, persecutor of Catholics, is known as “Good Queen Bess.” The real story of Galileo and the Church. The massive persecution of Christians in the 20th Century. The workings of the Holy Spirit throughout Church History and how your own faith story fits into "His-story." If you are interested in being part of this exciting course which will commence sometime in early October, please register your name on the sheet in the foyer. Cost of materials should be approximately $50 per person. The Rosary will be prayed in the Marian Chapel in our church each Wednesday at 10.30am.
