THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I would like to express my deepest thanks to all of you for participating in the celebration we had last weekend in honour of our patron St Anthony of Padua. I would like to especially thank all of you who were involved with helping run this amazing day. Our Social Committee who worked tirelessly all day in the grounds of St Anthony’s School. So many others who came and helped to run stalls, to bake scones or cakes which were provided generously. Others helped with parking and setting up and then, thankfully, with the putting everything away again. It was a huge weekend, one of the biggest and most successful I can recall as Parish Priest over the past eight years.

Many thanks also to our choir who sang their hearts put all day long and to those generous souls who helped clean the church in preparation for the evening Mass. To our St Antonians (members of the Association of St Anthony) who organised the statue and received devotees at the statue…many of whom came from parishes as far away as Dawesville.

I would also add that I was edified by the commitment of so many who came along for the Novena over a period of Nine Days. We had more then 70 people each weekday, many of whom came to the special evening Masses. This is really the heart of our celebration in honour of St Anthony…that we grow in our knowledge of God and become bearers of his light and love…just like St Anthony!

HOLY COMMUNION WORKSHOP

Students who are celebrating their First Holy Communion this coming July and August are expected to attend the Holy Communion Parent/Child Workshop which takes place in our church this Wednesday 24th June at 5.00pm. This is an essential pre-requisite without which your child may be ineligible to participate.

OUR YOUTH MASS IS THIS SUNDAY

Our next Youth Gathering will be this Sunday evening June 21. Burger/chips in the hall afterwards! Year 9 and above students welcome! If you haven’t been before, please feel welcome to come along!

OUR SACRED SPACE FOR ST ANTHONY HAS BEEN REFURBISHED

Many thanks to Nic Nicoletti and Fin Moroney, who have done an amazing job in refurbishing our Sacred Space for St Anthony. The Sacred Space was refurbished in memory of Adele Marconi who was a lifelong parishioner and supporter of St Anthony’s Day! We shall have a small leaflet published soon which will educate people with regard to the historical symbols we have placed in this sacred space. Please take the time to visit this area and pray… it is very conducive to prayer!

PASTORAL LETTER FROM ARCHBISHOP TIM COSTELLOE

There are copies of a Pastoral Letter from our Archbishop, about the ‘same-sex marriage’ debate, in the foyer should you want to read what the church has to say on this matter.

POPE FRANCIS’ NEW ENCYCLICAL IS ‘LAUDATO SI’

Pope Francis has just released another Encyclical called Laudato Si. It has already become a subject of conversation throughout the world…despite having only been released on Thursday afternoon…our time. Here are the first few words…1. “LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”.[1] you can check the whole document out at the below web address: http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/encyclicals/documents/papafrancesco_ 20150524_enciclica-laudato-si.html
