Notices and Upcoming Events
World Day of Prayer
The World Day of Prayer is a
movement led by Christian
women who welcome you to join in prayer and action for peace and justice. It is run under the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action,” and is celebrated annually in 170 countries on the first Friday in March.
The movement aims to bring together people of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer, as well as in closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.
The World Day of Prayer will be held at our parish at 10 am on Friday, 5th March, 2021. The theme for this year is, “Build on a Strong Foundation and the host nation is Vanuatu”. Food and refreshments to follow the service. We hope you will join us. Click here to view the poster.
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.
Small Coin Collections
This collection scheme once added to the Cans and Bottles has boosted the transfer of funds to $600+ sent to India and $572 ($340 awaiting transfer) to Benin. Your generosity has no equal considering how few we are compared to other Parishes who raise money for other causes. Well done everybody!
Possible Family Fun Afternoon
A suggestion has been put forward, that we as a Traditional Community, hold a fun, family afternoon soon after Easter, here on our beautiful lawns. We have all gone through a serious amount of mental and physical disruption since the Pandemic has been among us, including roadworks.
This suggestion is a means of rewarding yourselves for your perseverance as a Community, in remaining together when it would have been too easy to go to Mass on-line.
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 Chadd, Pat Cunnington, Tony Dimelo, Dorothy Hardy, Sky Hurleigh-Craig, Thomas Mazza, Helen Clune, Paul Clune.

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.
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.
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?
