Notices and Upcoming Events
Roadworks: Chapel Access
Please note: Due to roadworks, there is currently only one way to access the Chapel, which is from the south. Turn onto Streich Road, either at or before Foster Road.
Phil & Pam Chadd
For the last ten years, Pam and Philip Chadd have been the stalwart carers of the Tridentine Mass here at Good Shepherd. Each Sunday, Pam has greeted the faithful with her warm and smiling spirit. She too, has always adorned the Altar with flowers while Phil has been the devoted Sacristan, preparing the Altar and vestments each week for the priest.
As they step down from these duties, please let us all be grateful to them for their dedication, kindness and service. May God bless them and hold them in the palm of His hand for the goodness and devotion they've given to Him.
Next Community Meeting
Once again, all are invited to attend the next meeting to discuss the fine tuning of roles, responsibilities and management needs. In honour of Phil Chadd's request for volunteers, last month's extended community meeting yielded a few changes to roles in the stewardship and caring for the Latin Mass Chapel, such as a new sacristan and new floral arranger. A committee to guide us forward was suggested for more community involvement and care. As a result, Phil and Pam have unfortunately requested to step down from all duties, other than choir.
Please come along and share your ideas and suggestions as to how we can move forward together and build a happy, strong and vibrant community. We are all in this faith and parish together. Rescheduled date to be advised.
Volunteers Required Training
All church volunteers are requested to attend a safeguarding training session, as it is our collective responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults within our parish. Next session at the Kelmscott parish is Saturday, May 29 from 9-11am. To register, please visit http://safeguarding.perthcatholic.org.au/training-calendar-church-workers/
Holy Water Dispenser
A temporary Holy Water dispenser is available, compliant with COVID restrictions. The pump should only be operated immediately after using hand sanitiser.
Our Chapel has a wonderful Facebook page with frequent updates. Have a read and enjoy. Find it here.
Strictly 8.10 - 8.20am, please. Do not join the waiting pew if it has already reached 8.20 am as Father must have time to vest and prepare to celebrate Holy Mass at 8.30 am.
Bring 'Em, Don't Bin 'Em
To date, we have
collected on average 440 cans per week (5290 in total). We began in November collecting cans and drink bottles for our two projects. Collected for India is $150.30, plus $376.90 for the Sisters in Benin.
Please keep in mind every 10c will provide a meal in India for an underprivileged child. In addition, India has no welfare system and those required to retire at 55, must live on any possible (unlikely) savings they have made in their working life. The consequences are very harsh, so please spread your love and some dollars. If you have any containers with the printed '10c refund' please Don't Bin It - Bring It.
Please Pray For ...
Emeritus Archbishop B.J. Hickey, Monsignor M. Keating, Fr. Alfonsas Savickis, Fr. Ted Miller, Fr. Lionel Henry,
Fr. Pavol Herda P.P., Michele Carter, Pamela and Phil Chadd, Pat Cunnington, Tony Dimelo, Dorothy Hardy, Sky Hurleigh-Craig, Thomas Mazza, Helen and Paul Clune, Michelle Hamilton-Moody, Jim and Noeleen Chadd.
