As you are aware our much loved Parish Priest is leaving us to continue his journey at Castle Hill, and since he is away in Rome at the moment, I thought it would be a great time to take over the bulletin and let you in on our surprise for him.
The Parish Team would like to invite you all to his final celebration which will be a combined English (9am) and Chinese (11.30am) Mass to be held on Sunday the 16th July 2017 at 10am, followed by a Parish Sausage Sizzle so everyone can say their goodbyes and thanks.
The Parish will only be supplying the Sausage sizzle and Ice Blocks for the children so we ask you to B.Y.O everything else. i.e. Blankets, chairs, drinks, sweets.
To follow Fr Fernando’s wishes the Parish will not be taking a special collection for him, however if you would like to give Fr Fernando a token of appreciation please feel free to, he is leaving so it’s not like he can get upset at me for encouraging it!!
To help with ordering the sausages and ice blocks there are forms at the back of the Church please just write your family name and the number of Adults and Children attending so we can make sure no one goes without.
On the day, there will be very limited parking as the school grounds will not be opened, so we encourage everyone to park in surrounding streets, or if you can walk please do so. The parking spots that will be available our elderly and disabled parishioner will have first preference.
We do expect large numbers and the Mass will still be in the Church.
If you have any questions, please contact the Parish Office on 96301951.
Thank you for your time and we hope to see you all there.
