ST MICHAEL’S “GUARDIAN’:
We are putting together a Parish Report of all our activities from July 1 2017 to 30 June 2018. The name of the new periodical is the ”Guardian”. The report will be given to the Parish in August. So, help is needed. To make the publication worth reading, we need to have a report from all groups and ministries in the Parish. So to our leaders, could you please put together a report, and email it to the Parish at email@example.com by July 15 at the latest.
Thank you for all you do, now let’s celebrate it and share it with our community.
FR FRANCIS ON LEAVE:
We wish Fr Francis safe travels as he commences his Annual Leave on Monday June 18. Fr Francis will return home to Nigeria to spend time with his family and to catch up with his friends. We are fortunate to have Fr Mark Godridge coming to say Mass for us for the next five weekends, and the generous priests in Morwell have agreed to say midday Mass here on
Wednesdays, in Fr Francis’ absence.
Deacon Tony will be present in the parish in Father’s absence and will conduct some Communion Services and be available to the sick and dying. He will be supported by Sr Doreen and the parish staff
