Pentecost Sunday Celebrations
The Liturgy Committee is currently preparing for Pentecost Sunday on 4th & 5th June 2022. As part of the celebrations, we would like to recognise and show the cultural diversity of our parish community. We have put together a list of countries representing the cultural heritage or country of origin of our parishioners based on our limited knowledge. Please let us know by 31st May of your cultural heritage / country of origin if it is not in the list below. You can either email cheryl.tay@cam.org.au or add the name of the country on the notice pinned on the notice board in the church foyer.

If you plan to attend 11.15am mass on 5th Jun, we also invite you to bring a dish representing your cultural background to share with the community after mass. Thank you.

Parish Feast Day Celebrations

The Liturgy Committee is currently preparing for our parish feast day celebration on 25th & 26th June. We invite all parishioners to send in a photo of yourself or with your family to enable us to create a mosaic image for our feast day celebration. You can send in your photos in 2 ways:
  • Email it to cheryl.tay@cam.org.au with the subject title: parish feast day mosaic; or
  • Drop it in the collection box located in the church foyer. Please make sure to write your name and contact number on the back of the photo so that it can be returned to you after.

Take the way of the Gospel

The Archdiocese is currently seeking expressions of interest from clergy and laity to become members of the Take the Way of the Gospel Stakeholder Advisory and Reference Group. Expressions of interest close Wednesday 4 May 2022.
For further details on this and developments of this initiative, please refer to the Archdiocese website.

Our parish leadership team is also continually looking at ways to engage the community and help grow its faith and mission.

Faith makes us walk with Jesus on the roads of this world, in the certainty that the power of His Spirit will bend the forces of evil, subjecting them to the power of God’s love.” – @ Pontifex Jul 6 2020
 
May the love and peace of our Lord be with and in you. Amen.
