Remem­ber Mis­sion Giving: 

The Par­ish sup­ports sev­er­al mis­sion pro­jects through giv­ing to the ABM.  You can give to the ABM in the fol­low­ing ways:

  • by elec­tron­ic trans­fer to the St Luke’s bank account (see last page of this book­let), with “ABM” in the note.
  • by cred­it card – click ‘Giv­ing’ on the St Luke’s web­site and select ABM from the drop­down menu.
  • by cash placed in an envel­ope marked ‘ABM’ and placed in the col­lec­tion plate as you leave.

In the cur­rent cir­cum­stances, our mis­sion agen­cies, like the churches, are in great­er need.  Please remem­ber to sup­port ABM.


Life-Sav­ing Phone numbers:

Recently I com­pleted a St Johns Ambu­lance course on ‘Men­tal Health First Aid’. Some­thing I gained from the course was the import­ance of hav­ing the resources to handle crisis situ­ations.  Some import­ant phone num­bers which every­one should have on hand are:

Life­Line: 13 11 14       Kids Help Line: 1800 55 1800       Bey­ond Blue: 1300 22 4636      MensLine: 1300 789 978      1800 RESPECT1800 737 732

Please write these num­bers down, put them on your mobile or keep this notice some­where safe.  You might not need it your­self but someone you love or meet might be the one who needs it.  Fr Jeff
