SENIORS / ANOINTING MASS

HISTORY BOOK OF OUR PARISHES
At long last we will be launching the History Book of both Parishes. The book lovingly put together by John Morris contains some wonderful stories and photos of the history of both Parishes including the four schools. The book will be launched at the Masses next weekend and will be available for $30. Don't miss it as your photo is probably in the book!
ST VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS APPEAL
St Vincent De Paul Conference at Sunnybank would like to thank you all for your generous contributions last weekend for their Christmas Annual Appeal. You may still wish to donate food and gifts for a hamper which can be distributed to those in need before Christmas.
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
If your child missed enrolling for the Sacrament of Reconciliation this year 2016, there will be another opportunity to receive this Sacrament in the first term of 2017. Only children who are in Year 4, 5 or 6 in 2017 are eligible. These children will join with the other children who received Reconciliation this year, and who will make their Confirmation and Eucharist later in 2017. If you wish to register, please ring the Parish Office on 3345 3766 for an appointment with Sr Stella. Enrolments close 19th January 2017.
