PROPOSED CHANGES TO OUR MARIAN CHAPEL

We are looking at making some changes to our Marian Chapel. The proposed changes will include a smaller Blessed Sacrament Chapel in which we will install a relic of Blessed Mother Teresa. It will also involve moving the current statue of Our Lady a few metres so she is visible to everyone who enters our beautiful church. There will be an information night this Thursday evening May 26 at 7pm. If you are interested, please come along and listen to the proposal. Once we agree as a community I can then make an appointment with the Archbishop for his approval.

PARISH RETREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR MEN

A retreat for men to reflect on their spirituality will take place in the parish hall on NEXT Saturday 28th May from 9:30a.m. to 3:30pm. It is a time to relax, listen, learn, share, discuss, pray, reflect, be still and have some fun. The theme will be on the parable of the Compassionate Father welcoming home his two lost sons. Coffee and tea provided. BYO lunch. An expression of interest list is in the foyer. For more info contact the presenter Gerald Searle on 94047292, or email gerald.searle@hotmail.com

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY

Many thanks to our generous parishioners who have contributed $8599 to Project Compassion. That is considerable increase on previous years...Last year’s total was $5816!

YOUTH MEETING IN JUNE

Our next Youth Meeting will be on Friday evening June 10. We will be gong for a movie and dinner: nothing excessive of course:-) More details to come in the next week or so... once we have knowledge of what movies are available. If you have any ideas about a place to eat close by the Cinema in Joondalup/Currumbine...let Fr John know. LIFELINK The NEW Lifelink Newsletter in the foyer, gives news of what our contributions to this charity assist with in terms of outreach to the homeless in Perth. Once again, Wanneroo was very generous in contributing more than $11,000 to last year’s appeal.

CHURCH HISTORY

Our Church History Course is rapidly coming to an end. There is only 1 more class left. We are going to meet for a meal, supplied by the church, on Wednesday evening the 1st of June at 7pm. It will be a simple meal and an opportunity for us to share our thoughts on the course and maybe even discuss what you might like to study in any future courses. Many thanks to those ardent souls who have journeyed throughout the past 20 weeks...I have learned a lot and deeply desire to learn more.

PARISH COUNCIL

Our Parish Council meeting for May will have to be cancelled due to Fr John having too many commitments this month. Next Meeting June 15 at 7.45 (due to St Anthony’s Mass and Novena being on at 7.00pm).

THOUGHTS ON THE TRINITY

Isaac Newton was one of the greatest mathematicians and scientists that ever lived. Yet, towards the end of his life he said of his achievements: “I do not know what I appear to the world, but to myself, I appear to have been like a little boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” Even when we think we understand the mystery of God, we are still only beginning. We are still only children playing on the shore. The mystery grows instead of diminishing with each new discovery. Some people want to know everything, to explain everything, break everything down to facts. But it is exciting to live with mystery. Albert Einstein said, “The most beautiful experience we can have is that of the mysterious.” Even with faith, the mystery, the darkness, the unknowable remain. The whole of life is not visible to us. As Van Gough said, “Here on earth we see only on hemisphere.” Flor McCarthy, SDB (New Sunday and Holy Day Liturgies)
