FIRST HOLY COMMUNION….

We congratulate the parish children who this weekend at the 9.30am Mass will receive Jesus for the first time in the   Eucharist. We pray that your First Communion Day will be the first of many encounters with Jesus in this wonderful Sacrament of the Church.  I take this opportunity to thank the children’s Year 4 Teacher, Mrs Sullivan, for preparing them for this day.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT PARK

in the driveways of the church.  It is not only very selfish, but also against the law. Elderly parishioners need to park in the church grounds so they don’t have to walk so far, plus you will be facing a $180 fine.  Please be more courteous to your fellow parishioners.
