Blayney Pascal Candle Update (from Eddie Reddy) — John & Janet in Blayney send their greetings. The Pastel Candle has been delivered and they really appreciated it. They send their love and regards to St Lukes Enmore for the thoughts, prayers and support to the Blayney, Carcoar & Millthorpe Churches. If all is well, they are looking forward in coming down to meeting us at St Luke’s for our Wardens Dinner night.
Any notices for the service booklet will need to be submitted to the Parish Office email by Tuesday evening at the latest. This is so we can post out the weekly service booklet earlier.
Confirmation – Booked in for Sunday 23rd August (but waiting to be advised). Bp Michael Stead will be here for confirmation. Anyone who is not confirmed is invited to go through the process of preparation with Fr Jeff. Please speak to Fr Jeff about this.
Food for our little friends — Don’t forget to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peelings, tea leaves and coffee grounds for the parish worm farms. (No citrus, dairy or meat). You can still drop this off outside the office — during office hours.
