Under the care of the Discalced Carmelite Friars
My dear people,
Most of you will be aware that the Holy Father has announced the Most Rev. Timothy Costelloe, SDB DD as the new Archbishop of Perth. Let us all pray for our new Shepherd, that we, his people, will be a source of strength to him in his work for the Lord.
The response to the small group Lenten programmes has been very pleasing. It will benefit our whole parish to have this core of 34 people who will be reflecting deeply on the Gospels throughout the Lenten season. For those of us who are unable to commit to this kind of preparation, we can still make an effort to increase our prayer time and to take a little extra time to give of ourselves to others. We might do this by observing the rule of abstinence on the Fridays in Lent; by putting aside something extra for our almsgiving; by setting aside a special time each day for prayer and reflection. These are things which even the busiest person can manage and will serve to make our Lenten days a time “set apart” for God.
I am pleased to advise that the total raised for our “A Night of Joy” concert was $3166.16. These funds will go toward some large maintenance projects being currently undertaken or planned for the near future. After the next finance committee meeting, I will report to you on the current position of our maintenance programme. — Fr. Sunny Read more…
