Notices — Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost — 22nd August 2021



Thank you to Fr James Collins OAM from St Paul’s Bur­wood, for his ser­mon dur­ing our pre-recor­ded ser­vice this week.


The flowers in the church today have been donated by Tiffany Chiew and her fam­ily in lov­ing memory of her fath­er, John Satterley.


Par­ish Con­tact List update:  We are cur­rently in the pro­cess of updat­ing our Par­ish Con­tact List.  If you or your fam­ily have recently moved, or acquired a new phone num­ber or email address it is import­ant to let us know so we can keep our records up to date.  Please con­tact me at or on Mob: 0409 049 442


The office is closed until fur­ther notice: Jen­nifer will be work­ing from home on Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thursday from 9.15–2.45pm.  Please email or if urgent call Mob: 0409 049 442.


Not receiv­ing emails from Fr Jeff?   Each Sunday and Wed­nes­day, an email con­tain­ing the Sunday Ser­vice and then a Wed­nes­day reflec­tion is being sent to every­one on our email list.  In some cases parish­ion­ers believe they are not receiv­ing them.  We have found that in many cases the email has gone to their ‘spam’ or ‘junk’ file.  This hap­pens with some email pro­viders.  If you haven’t received an email from the par­ish or Fr Jeff on these days, check those oth­er folders and you will prob­ably find it.



ST PAUL’S PANTRY des­per­ately needs food.

Please keep col­lect­ing your dona­tions of tinned and non-per­ish­able food items.

You will be able to bring them in to the church when ser­vices resume.
