Parish Newsletter 27th November 2011

This weekend marks the start of Advent.
Our theme this Advent is
How Do We Discover the Presence of God in Every Day?

“Brigidine Asylum Seeker Program”
The plight of those people seeking asylum in our country has been very much in our consciousness these past months. The political parties have continued to treat those who have had to flee from their country of origin for their own political ends, rather than address the needs of those individuals and families seeking refuge and safety.
Sister Brigid Arthur is launching our Advent Appeal as she speaks this weekend.
Donations can be made via the envelopes in the pews.
What Can I Do?
Why not join us next Sunday 4th December after the 9.00 & 10.30 Masses to Write a Message of Hope to detainees telling them you welcome them to this country and that we are working to change our Government’s policies.
Bring along a Christmas card to send.

Would you like to come along and help plan for the Christmas Eve Family Mass at SPJE?
Time: Wed 6th December at 2.00pm
Place: Please come to the Parish House.

Parish Fair
Thanks to all those who braved the wet weather (that’s probably an understatement) to support our Parish Fair.
Huge recognition also goes to the committee behind making it all happen. More info to come.
