The 70th Anniversary Celebrations 2018

 

Many thanks to our Lord for this all the blessings he has bestowed upon us throughout the last 70 years; for all the 7 Sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist. We thank Him for the diversity of people we have, a sign of the universal church; we thank Him also for the love, life and faith that we all share. We thank our Auxiliary Bishop Terry Brady and clergy for celebrating the solemn Mass with all of us on this memorable weekend. Their presence helps to make the day more special. We also thank our Parish Council and the dozens of generous volunteers who are working very hard preparing so many things for the liturgical celebration and the social celebration. Thank you to all who are contributing in small or big ways to make it a joyful, prayerful and wonderful celebration. God bless you all.

Our parish community warmly welcomed Fr Francesco Mary Gavazzi who came to celebrate with us, in his parish of baptism, his first Mass in Australia. We welcomed his parents, his grandparents, siblings and all relatives and friends who came to join us in this wonderful celebration. May God bless him with a very fruitful ministry and the Lord grant him a meek and humble heart like Jesus. Everybody celebrated over a cuppa and a special cake. A true blessing!
