NOVENA IN HONOUR OF BLESSED MOTHER TERESA

Saturday September 3: 8.30am and 6.30pm
Sunday September 4: 7.30am, 9.00am and 6.00pm
Monday September 5: 8.30am and 7.00pm

A novena (derived from the Latin word novem, meaning ‘nine’) is a traditional Catholic devotion in which public and private prayer is offered on nine consecutive days for a particular need or intention or in preparation to celebrate a special feast. The first novena took place in the upper room in Jerusalem after Jesus had ascended into Heaven, when the apostles “with one accord devoted themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren” (Acts 1:14) as they awaited the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. Since the 17th century, numerous novenas addressed to God, to the Blessed Virgin Mary, or to one of the Saints have been composed. We pray to the saints in Heaven , and they, being closer to God than we on earth, intercede with him for our needs.

The Rosary will be prayed in the Marian Chapel in our church each Thursday at 9.00am

MORNING TEA AND CAKE STALL

There will be morning tea after the 7.30 and 9.00am Masses next weekend. Please come along and meet some of the other parishioners. There is also a St Vincent de Paul Cake Stall. If any parishioners are able to help with a homemade cake, biscuits, or jam it would be greatly appreciated. If you can help or have any questions, please ring Jany Li on 0408 888 118. Many Thanks for your continued suppot.

PREPARATION FOR OUR NEW CHAPEL IN
HONOUR OF SAINT MOTHER TERESA

As you can see, the progress on our new Blessed Sacrament Chapel, in honour of St Mother Teresa, is underway. The beautiful fusion glass panel you can see behind the Tabernacle depicts Exodus 13:21 “The Lord went in front of them in a pillar of cloud by day, to lead them along the way, and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light...” You may like to come and look at the panels which are visible from the Sanctuary and the Marian Chapel. Mary’s new resting place may well also be finished. Many thanks to Nic and Fin for all their hard work and commitment.

PARISH COURSE ON THE PROPHETS

Those who are interested in Adult faith Education may be interested in our New course beginning on Tuesday evening November 15 and Wednesday morning and evening 16 November. The resources required for the 10 week course will cost approximately $30 per person. The course will provide valuable insights into the life and purpose of the prophets, of whom we hear from often in our Old Testament Readings each weekend. If you would like a book for the course, then please write your name and phone number on the sheet provided in the foyer.

GOD’S FARM RETREAT

God’s Farm will be having a retreat weekend on Friday 28 October 7.00pm to Sunday 30 October 4.00pm. There will also be a Mass of thanksgiving at 10.30am for all that God has achieved at God’s Farm in the past 30 years. This will be followed by lunch and further celebrations. For full details please see the notice on the noticeboard in the foyer.

ENQUIRY DAY FOR PRIESTHOOD

There will be a day of enquiry for the Priesthood at St Charles Seminary on Sunday September 4 from 10am-5pm. For more information see the Noticeboard in the foyer.

NO MASS AT BELGRADE VILLAGE THIS FRIDAY

My humble apologies to the residents of Belgrade Village, but due to my presiding at a funeral in the church next Friday morning I will be unable to celebrate their monthly Mass.

NO FIRST FRIDAY MASS AND ADORATION NEXT WEEK

I understand that some people have a devotion to first Friday Mass. This coming Friday we are celebrating the first of our Holy Communion Masses at 6.30pm. You are welcome to attend should you wish to fulfil your first Friday obligation.
