Farewell Morning Tea for Fr Leonse
Fr Leonse enjoyed a lovely farewell and wishes to thank all for coming.
It is with great appreciation we acknowledge Terrence Howard for the gift of a beautiful marble bust of the Madonna. The alabaster and marble sculpture was created in 1890 and was donated to the parish as a bequest from Terry who passed on 11 August. It is now on display in the parish centre.
Be sure to come in to see it (pictured left, and right with Terry’s son and daughter).
Doll Painting is Back!
Would you like to meet people and have a cuppa and a chat? Well you can do this and help Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School at the same time. The school needs more help with painting wooden peg dolls for the Religious Education curriculum for Kindergarten and Year 1. You DO NOT need to have any artistic skills as instructions and paint, brushes, etc will all be provided. Just bring yourself (and a friend - many hands make light work) to the Parish Centre on Friday mornings from 9:30-11:30am. For more information call Colleen 4332 2216.
Bible Reflection Group
The focus of the Bible Reflection Group is to create an opportunity for everyone to learn, reflect and deepen their knowledge on the Word of God. Presented by Seminarian Tân Nguyen, the Scripture text to reflect on will be the Gospel of the coming Sunday of the week. Bring your Sunday Missal or we will provide a printed copy for you. Morning Tea will be held after the Reflection. Wednesdays in the Reynolds Room from 9:30am to 10:20am. Everyone is welcome to join at any week. No RSVP required.
We meet in the Reynolds Room (at the northern end of the OLR Catholic Church carpark) from 3-4:45pm. Join us for lots of fun activities, games and interaction! For children aged 5-12. Younger children welcome but parent/carer must remain present. All parents/carers are welcome to stay. Afternoon tea provided. Then come along to Mass at 5pm. No need to RSVP, just turn up! For more information, call the Parish Office on 4332 2216.
