Notices_Second Sunday Of Easter_17th April 2022


We con­grat­u­late Fr Jeff on his appoint­ment as St John Ambu­lance NSW State Chap­lain and a warm wel­come to our guests today from St John who are to take part in the spe­cial ceremony.


The flowers in the church today are giv­en by Andy Ser­afin in lov­ing memory of Gra­ham Hall and arranged by Moya Holle.




Today: Par­ish Coun­cil meets in the church after morn­ing tea.


Many thanks to all those who gave so very gen­er­ously to cov­er the cost of the beau­ti­ful flowers in the church on East­er Day.  After all the rain the cost of flowers had almost doubled, and your dona­tions were so very much appreciated!

Thank you also to those who came to assist in the East­er pre­par­a­tions; flowers and clean­ing.  To Andy who always makes everything just hap­pen so won­der­fully and to Colin and Fabi­an for their assist­ance to him.  To those who helped with vacu­um clean­ing, dust­ing and glass clean­ing and sweep­ing the car­park — thank you, your help was invaluable!

This majest­ic ora­tor­io has always been one of the composer’s most pop­u­lar works, and in many ways rep­res­ents the sum­mit of his craft.
