MU Focus for the week: Advent

We wait with expectation, searching, longing for the wonder and glory of Christís coming.  We hold our breath at the enormity of Godís gift to us. The Church in its wisdom sets aside a time of waiting, of preparation before Christmas so we can, like wise maidens, fill the lamps of our spiritual life.  MU in Namibia works with each diocese and prayer is central to its activities. High on their agenda are gender-based violence, baby dumping and human trafficking as well as addiction, poverty and unemployment. Let us thank God for membersí commitment to running groups & acting as local counsellors.

 

Xmas Hampers

We are distributing Christmas hampers to our parish pantry families. Please bring Xmas goodies. There is a list of suggested items in the foyer.

 

Advent Study

Our Advent study group begins in the Holland Room at 7pm this Thursday 7th December. We will be reading Goodness and Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas. A collection of readings by various authors including Pope Francis, Thomas Merton & Richard Rohr. Copies are available for $20. Please sign up on the sheet in the foyer if you would like a copy of the book and/or would like to attend the study group.

 

CHRISTMAS GIFTS

Our 2017 catalogue for the parish, community & world is now available. Once you have selected your gift write your pledge on a card & place it on the tree.

 

Gail is on leave 5/12-12/12 please contact John Clark in emergency 

Parish Pantry

Thank you for your support.  Everyone really appreciates the food you are donating for emergency bags and
lunch-boxes. We particularly need long-life milk, pasta sauce and  butter & margerine, school snacks and box drinks at this time as well as cash for $25 Coles vouchers.

PASTORAL VISITS

Please let Gail know if you would like a visit, or for someone you know at home or in hospital for prayer, communion or anointing or simply a chat over a cup of tea.

Gail is not available Tuesday  unless it is an emergency but otherwise is happy to come when available.


FUNERAL PLANNING

Several parishioners have met with Gail to choose the hymns and readings for their funerals and other liturgy requests for such a service. The information is then kept on file to assist family members with their planning when the time comes. Please consider doing this whatever your age or state of health, it is important that your wishes are communicated. Planning forms are available from the office.


HELP NEEDED

Please consider helping as a reader, sidesperson, morning tea server or provider, MC, LA or projector operator as there are some spaces to be filled on the rosters at either service. Let Gail know if you are interested. Job descriptions are available.

DONATION FOR MORNING TEA
