Sunday 11 August 2019 Notices

Today (11 August): — we have a spe­cial guest for our young people – Den­nis Clare (Mime Artist) who will enter­tain us dur­ing morn­ing tea.  Please stay and enjoy the fun!

Last week’s Rect­ory Bar­be­cue was a great time of fel­low­ship and fun.  We plan to make this a reg­u­lar event.  Watch this space for the next one.

[The War­dens would like to thank Fr Jeff and Michelle for host­ing our first par­ish BBQ with them in the Rect­ory.  The food, of course, was won­der­ful and thanks to our cooks Fr Jeff and Oscar and to all who brought deli­cious salads and desserts.  There will be anoth­er occa­sion before the end of the year and it will be announced as soon as pos­sible.  We will let Fr Jeff enjoy his Father’s Day with his fam­ily on 1st Sunday in September!]

Fr Jeff has com­piled his ten notes ‘On Pray­er’, pub­lished in our ser­vice sheet over these last ten weeks, into a small book­let which is avail­able at the door and in the hall.  Please take one.

Flowers today are donated by Noel Jeffs.  We con­grat­u­late him on cel­eb­rat­ing the Anniversary of his Pro­fes­sion (1982), on 9th August.

OpShop news:  As part of our “giv­ing to the needy” we have twice this year now giv­en $500 to St Paul’s Bur­wood “Pantry”.  Fr James and his con­greg­a­tion are help­ing people liv­ing rough, on NewS­tart or simply strug­gling to make ends meet.  He’s also star­ted up a soup kit­chen at dif­fer­ent times of the week.  We do not seem to get the same call on our resources, so this seems a sens­ible solu­tion for us to help them pur­chase goods.  Fr James has respon­ded each time with his most pro­fuse thanks to you all, acknow­ledging this gift and his wish we pass this mes­sage on.

We will endeav­our to donate the same amount each quarter while we are in a pos­i­tion to do so.

Sunday 25th August — Bish­op Michael Stead’s visit.

Our Play Group for carers of young chil­dren is con­tinu­ing in the hall Mondays 10 a.m. to 12 noon.  Please let oth­ers know about this group.

Any notices for the pew sheet will need to be sub­mit­ted to the par­ish office email by Wed­nes­day even­ing at the latest.

Homemade curds, rel­ishes, pickles and jam — If you would like to order some, please email your order to Lea MacNeil ( and it will be delivered to Opshop.
