Under the care of the Discalced Carmelite Friars
Our next Alpha starts on Tuesday 30 July at 6.30pm
This is your opportunity to be part of the Alpha experience and to invite anyone you know who has questions about faith and life to come along. Or, you may know someone who is thinking of returning to the Church, or who is interested in exploring ideas like this—Alpha is the perfect “first step” in examining or re-examining what Christianity means in our world today.
Parishioners who are participating in our current
Alpha have been very impressed by the method and message of the Alpha program. Why not come and experience it for yourself—you will find it will give you the confidence you may need to invite your family and friends along. Registration is essential, numbers are limited—so don’t miss out!

SUMMER IN THE FOREST is a moving documentary of an extraordinary man—Jean Vanier—and of L’Arche, the international organization of which he is the founder. Jean Vanier is one of the most heart-warming saints of our time. He is a Canadian who single-handedly revolutionised the way in which people with an intellectual disability are seen and cared for, by the simple act of inviting them out of institutions and into his home in the 1960s. ‘Meeting’ some of the current residents of that home in Trosly, France, is one of the many highlights of this beautiful film.
The film will be shown only once in Perth at the Cinema Paradiso on Monday 20 May at 7.00pm. This is a fundraiser for L’Arche Perth. Unless a certain number of people book by 10 May the film will not be screened. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

At this workshop you will have the opportunity to handwrite letters to the local member, and to the six members of the Legislative Council – East Metropolitan Region. Resources to assist you in the wording of letters, and addresses to parliamentarians will be available. Pens, papers, envelopes and stamps will be provided. Supper will also be available during the letter writing.
If you would like to attend this workshop, please write your name down on the sheet in the church foyer. For more info, please contact Chris Harkness, email@example.com or Billie at the parish office, firstname.lastname@example.org
