Project India Update
November and December's Small Change Collection Box will be allocated to missionary work in India. 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. Join us with our fundraising initiative: the 'Bring 'Em - Don't Bin 'Em' recycling collection. If you have any containers with the printed '10c refund' please Don't Bin It - Bring It. 10c will also provide one meal in India for an underprivileged child.
The Small Coin Collection has reached $215.25 and the bottle refund account is $43.30. Our target is $400. The Community's generosity is simply outstanding. Thank you!!
Thank you to the Moody boys, Matthew and Michael, guided by Mum and Dad, for setting up the crib this year. What a great job!
Disposal of Religious Items
Do you know how to properly dispose of religious items, if need be?
Items that are blessed must be treated with reverence. If they cannot be given away to others, then they must be buried, or burned and buried. Do this also for items you are unsure of, regarding blessing.
If the items have not been blessed, such as holy cards and images through the mail, then they are simply pictures that can be thrown away. More information can be found here.

Updated Directives from the Archdiocese of Perth
Archbishop Costelloe has released revised directives for Churches and Chapels. Phase 4 of WA's COVID-19 Roadmap will continue until an as yet undetermined date.
Social distancing is still in place, as are the requirements for compliance. The revised directives may be found here.
Mandatory Contact Register
As of 5 December 2020, it is mandatory for particular businesses and venues, including places of worship, to collect contact details of patrons. Keeping a contact register will help the Department of Health with COVID-19 contact tracing.
Details required are date, arrival time, name and contact number.
Musical Instrument Volunteer
We are hoping for an Organist to come forward and exercise their talent for the greater glory of God. Sheet music and tuition support available. Please contact Phil on 0428 966 916.
There is a COVID-19 Compliance Plan in place. Some key points:
Mass numbers are only restricted by available social distancing rules/space;
Registration is no longer required;
Sanitation will probably be the 'new normal' and will continue to be available/practised;
The prohibition on sharing and re-use of books and papers will remain in force until further notice;
Mass Booklets and printed hymn sheets are for personal re-use only. Please bring them back with you each week. All other bulletins etc. take with you until further notice.
'Could you not spend one hour with Me'?
Our Traditional Chapel is compact, serene and a wonderful place for worship.
The Chapel is open every Saturday morning from 9.00am-11.00am for Cleaning and Disinfecting in preparation for Sunday Mass.
Everyone is welcome to join us either Saturday or Sunday. 'Could you not spend one hour with me?' or even fifteen minutes to say hello?
