Dear Parishioners

Thank you for your support of Mission Sunday today. Envelopes are available if you wish to make a donation to the Pontifical Mission Society. Sincere thanks to all who worked so hard for the recent Mission Gala which raised $16,500 for the Presentation Sisters Missions in South America and Papua New Guinea. A morning tea to thank all the volunteers will be held on Wednesday 8 November 2017 after the 9.30am Mass.

In today’s Gospel Jesus invites us to look into our hearts where all the blessings of God reside even if we have lost sight of them. As a relatively young Church supporting even younger developing churches is a gesture of generosity and gratitude.

With every blessing in Christ,
Fr Michael McCabe, Parish Priest
