12th January 2020 - Feast of the Baptism of the Lord
We extend a very warm welcome to the boys and girls who are preparing for the sacraments of 1st Holy Communion and Confirmation and who will be participating in our Sunday 12 noon Mass this weekend.
Pope Francis has asked us to pray to the Lord to help the people of Australia at this difficult time as major fires rage across the nation. A number of our parishioners have close family relations in Australia and it is a very anxious time. Earlier this week, the president of the Australian Bishops Conference, Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane, issued a statement about the “unprecedented” crisis facing the country. Like Pope Francis, he too called for prayer, noting that “A genuine Catholic response to a crisis of this magnitude must draw strength from prayer which inspires concrete and compassionate action”.
We pray for Una Sheehan, Michael Venables, Nell Carroll, Brigid Scott and Patrick McDonald.
We remember Carmel Kenna, Tommy O’Brien and Brendan Cooper whose months minds occur around this time.
May they rest in peace and may their family and friends find comfort at this time.

1st and 2nd collection envelope (Blue and Pink)
Dear Parishioners: Many thanks to all our parishioners who signed up for envelopes for 1st and 2nd Sunday collection. We are delighted with the response.
Just to clarify that it is not a commitment to give €250 in these collections.
In practice what it means is that for tax refund purposes we can now add what the parishioner donates in the first and second collection to their planned giving or standing order donations so that the accumulated amount can attract tax refunds. This initiative was not designed to put pressure on our parishioners who are kind enough to donate to these collections and most likely also to the weekly family offering or standing order but rather to ensure that all your donations can be recorded for tax purposes (if you pay tax).The monies in the envelopes for the 1st and 2nd collection are of course are still lodged to the 1st and 2nd collection accounts. Many thanks to you and to our new volunteers who are counting these monies.
