Special Saturday Mass, July 10
It was decided at our last community meeting to meet with Fr. Rowe of St. Anne's Church, Belmont, to discuss the opportunity of sharing Latin Mass celebrants. Last Sunday, June 13, several parishioners attended a meeting with him in the hope of forming a strong, sustainable and united Traditional Latin Mass force here in Perth. The meeting was a positive step forward.
To introduce our congregation to Fr. Rowe, he has kindly offered to celebrate a Latin Mass here at Good Shepherd on Saturday, July 10 at 11.30am. All are invited to attend.
Next Community Meeting
Our next community meeting will be in July. It will be preceded by a continental breakfast to relax and socialize. All who wish to discuss and be involved with the future care of our Latin Mass community are invited.
A continental breakfast will be available from 9.30am - 10.15am, directly followed by the meeting. A $2 food donation is requested from the adults wishing to attend. Please note, no donations are requested for altar servers or children aged 12 and under. Donations towards food can be placed in the box marked "Supplies" on the donation table just inside the Chapel. All generosity greatly appreciated.
We are one of only two Parishes in the Perth Metropolitan region with a Latin Mass community and an attached school. Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School, in Kelmscott, is a warm and welcoming, single stream school, set on 13 acres of bush property in the hills. It is just 38 minutes from the centre of Perth.
The school teaches Kindergarten to Year 6 and offers specialist programs in Italian, music, science and physical education, plus the benefits of outdoor exploration and play-based learning. A playgroup program called Leapfrogs is also available for three-year-olds.
Links are as follows:
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.
Please Pray For ...
