Parishioners of all stages of ‘youth’ are warmly invited to come to our Youth Event to be held in the Kildare Hall at Lavalla Catholic College, Kosciuszko Street, Traralgon. It’s a great celebration, and includes Mass at 5:00pm. Please show our youth your encouragement. We’re currently looking for sponsors, performers, volunteers, leaders, readers . . . all help gratefully received.
We are in urgent need of three teams of five or six people each, who would be happy to come and clean our beautiful church. It is usually cleaned twice per month, and takes a team of five about an hour to vacuum, dust and ensure our pews are rubbish free. Currently we do not have a cleaning team for May, so this need is quite urgent. Please let the Parish Office know if you could help out.
We are currently blessed to have a number of dedicated parishioners who happily give of their time and talents to look after our buildings and our gardens. The Maintenance Team is now in need of further parishioners to boost their number. Forms to register your details are available on the tables in the Church entrances, and are also available on our website, www.smpt.org.au
LECTORS AND COMMENTATORS REQUIRED:
We currently have a real need for people to volunteer as Lectors (Readers) and Commentators, especially at 6:00pm Mass on Saturday nights.
Thanks to the few people who have responded with generosity to our plea. It would be marvelous to have two or three more volunteers. Training is available for anyone who is able to answer their baptismal calling in this service to the parish. Please contact parish office on 5174 2060 if you are interested.
We are in need of volunteers to work in our Piety Stall for 10-15 minutes after each Mass. Volunteers will receive some training, and need to have a current Working With Children Check. You will be rostered on once per month. Please contact parish office for more details.
It is currently very difficult for the parish to know when people are ill in hospital or at home. The ‘Catholic lists’ of yesteryear at the hospitals no longer exist. So, if there’s anyone in your family or anyone you know of who is unwell and who would welcome a visit from a parish representative or from Father, could you please let the office know by ringing 5174 2060.
